Tigers prop Josh Aloiai was also charged for a 55th-minute incident involving Roosters halfback Cooper Cronk.

Aloiai will avoid a one-game suspension if he takes an early plea.

Tigers gone for 2019.
You really think so? I think they’ll finish 9th, but I wouldn’t put a line through them yet!

Their forwards besides Matterson and Aloiai just don’t make enough hit ups!

It’s their backs that make so many hit ups like every year!

Wests Tigers prop Ben Matulino may have played his last game of rugby league as he faces the prospect of entering retirement.

NRL.com understands the knee injury the 30-year-old suffered in the club’s 27-26 victory against the Cowboys in round 14 is potentially career-ending.

Matulino hasn’t been able to return to training since the injury and there are genuine fears his NRL days are numbered.

Is he going to miss their next game???
Wests Tigers forward Michael Chee-Kam has been cleared of serious injury after spending the night in hospital.

Chee Kam was stretchered from the field with two minutes remaining in the Tigers' 28-26 defeat of the Knights and left the ground in an ambulance amid neck and head injury concerns.

He was monitored overnight at Newcastle's John Hunter Hospital before being discharged on Saturday morning.
The Tigers say the 27-year-old has been cleared of any serious injury and is in positive spirits, while the player himself thanked fans for their support via twitter on Saturday.

The club's medical staff will continue to monitor Chee-Kam as he undergoes mandatory Head Injury Assessment protocols in preparation for the Tigers' round 20 clash game against North Queensland at Leichhardt Oval.

Meanwhile, the Wests Tigers will make a call on Michael Chee Kam by Thursday morning after he was hospitalised last Friday after being knocked out against the Knights.

Chee Kam joined the group for training this week but has been limited in his work.

Has Wobbie played his last ever game???
Retiring veteran Robbie Farah has fractured part of his tibia but officials are hopeful he has not played his last game for the Wests Tigers.

Scans on Sunday have confirmed Farah's injury and the club said it would "explore further assessment and options around the hooker’s recovery". He will miss Thursday’s game against the Sea Eagles.

Tigers backrower Luke Garner facing a week on the sideline for grade one dangerous contact on Lachlan Lewis.
Wests Tigers forward Luke Garner will visit the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night in an attempt to beat a dangerous contact charge.

When the 35 carry-over points he has against his name were added to the 90 points an early guilty plea to the grade one charge brought with it, the back-rower was facing a one-week ban.

Even if he is unsuccessful at the judiciary, Garner will only miss one match. Wests Tigers announced their intention to fight the charge on Twitter on Monday.

Wests Tigers forward Luke Garner has been suspended for one match after failing to beat a dangerous contact charge at the judiciary on Tuesday night.

When the 35 carry-over points he had against his name were added to the 90 points an early guilty plea to the grade one charge brought with it, the back-rower was facing a one-week ban whether or not he challenged the charge.

By failing to beat the charge he received the full 120 points punishment, plus 35 carryover points.

Garner will next be eligible for selection in the club's round 23 home game against the Newcastle Knights at Campbelltown.
