The final nail may have been added to the Wests Tigers' NRL season, with Robbie Farah ruled out and Brett Hodgson in serious doubt for their must-win clash with Cronulla on Friday night.

Farah, who was to have started at hooker against the Sharks, failed to train with the Tigers on Thursday and will miss the Leichhardt Oval match with an ankle injury.

Captain and fullback Brett Hodgson is also now in doubt for his final home match before switching to the UK Super League next season, because a leg injury.

Stuck in 12th place and two points outside the top eight, the Tigers remain only a mathematical chance of making the playoffs and need to win their final two games to even stay in the hunt.

Farah joins prop Keith Galloway (foot), centre Dean Collis (knee) suspended prop Todd Payten on the sidelines.

Coach Tim Sheens said he won't finalise his starting team until late Friday.
