Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks was charged with contrary contact over an incident involving Jack Gosiewski at Lottoland on Thursday night but is available to face the Knights next round. Brooks took an early plea and was fined $1350.

$1350 is an odd amount ...

Sounds like he was running around okay, but tomorrow he needs to do a wrestling/contact session.

Wests Tigers have been dealt a huge blow leading into the club’s biggest game in almost a decade with skipper Moses Mbye ruled out for Sunday’s blockbuster against the Sharks.

The Tigers are yet to officially rule Mbye out of the game but NRL.com understands he has been scratched for the do-or-die fixture after failing to prove he had recovered from a hip injury at a closed session at Leichhardt Oval on Thursday.

Wests Tigers hooker Jacob Liddle has reached a milestone in his recovery from a serious knee injury with the removal of a brace.

The club has announced Liddle received a "positive surgical review" and is able to commence a lower body rehabilitation program. It is hoped he can start running by the early rounds of next season.

Tigers forward Josh Aloiai has been given positive news after wrist surgery and is training in a splint.

Prop Russell Packer is still recovering from foot surgery, while Matt Eisenhuth and Alex Twal had successful groin surgery and will resume full team training in the coming weeks.

Elijah Taylor (knee) and David Nofoaluma (elbow) will resume pre-season training in early December. Michael Chee Kam returned to training on Monday and will be monitored after hurting his shoulder while playing for Samoa.

Mbye left the field for a HIA in the 13th minute after a heavy collision while attempting to make a tackle.

He passed the HIA but it was then discovered he also suffered a knee strain. He did not return.

Speaking after the game, Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire said Mbye would undergo scans but he's expecting him to be fit for round one selection.
