According to multiple sources on Twitter, Farah is getting X-Rays on a possible fracture in his hand.

This would come as a huge blow for NSW as they're short in the hooking department. If Farah is injured, who should come in and how do you think they'll go in the decider?

You would have to think Ennis would be the favorite after his performance in the 2nd half against the Cowboys.

I think Ennis. I rate him about the others.

Same every game. All about Farah, always in doubt but always plays.

he's the safe bet. I couldn't see the Blues going with a left field selection at this point.

Although I reckon we'll see Farah anyway. he played with busted ribs years back so I can't see him willingly giving up his spot for a hand injury

He was in doubt for the last game as well.

As much as I'd like to bag Ennis he's been good for the Sharks and frankly as long as his service is decent to his fellow forwards we've still got to stop them.

He also kicks as much as Farah usually so not a lot lost there.

Ennis had his best game in a long time just before, but I'd trust him about as far as I can throw him in the Origin arena nowdays...especially if he has to play 80 minutes. Even Farah starts making stupid decisions if he's out there for more than 60.

I doubt he'll cop a suspension but it's worth noting that Ennis is on report for a high tackle.

Farah was really struggling against Penrith yesterday. I wouldn't be surprised if he was out.

He can still play though depending on where the fracture is. I still bet he is in no doubt.

He looked pretty useless for the tigers yesterday.

Yeah but he could have just been having a tantrum because they all sucked and apparently he has had a falling out with another coach. There is history to him doing that.

He may well be injured, but he cries wolf before every game so not unexpected that he is not believed once again when it comes to injury.

He himself said he was a passenger for the second half (as he was) because of the injury. He only made something like 24 tackles down from his usual 40+

He looked bad I agree but as I said, I'll believe it when he see him not there next Wednesday night.

Rothfield has tweeted that Ennis is going to cop a one game ban and will miss Origin if Farah is out.

They're screwed if they're both out.
