Tigers skipper may be out for season

Wests Tigers captain Darren Senter could have played his last game for the club after suffering a suspected fractured cheekbone in the round 21 NRL loss against the Eels at Parramatta Stadium.

The Eels won 21-18 in a physical and at times spiteful match with Senter the main casualty.

The 31-year-old Tigers skipper believes the injury came after an accidental knock in the second half.

Tigers coach Tim Sheens does not expect to see Senter back on the track this year.

"I doubt if we'll see Darren again," Sheens said.

When asked if it was the veteran's last game for the club with Senter off-contract, Sheens said: "we will make an effort to keep Darren."

Senter said he will know more about his injury following scans on Monday.

Senter who made his first grade debut for the Bulldogs in 1992 was also tight-lipped about his future at the Tigers.

"Tim Sheens is keen to keep me so it's just a matter of sitting down and chatting," Senter said.

After the Eels bolted to a 19-6 lead at half-time, many expected the home team would go on with the job in the second term.
