Wests Tigers are optimistic Robbie Farah has avoided serious injury after he was hospitalised following a blow to the head in Sunday's defeat to Canterbury Bulldogs.

Farah was hurt when making a tackle on Josh Reynolds, the former's head colliding with his opponent's hip before hitting the ground with a thud.

There was concern as the hooker lay motionless on the ground, but Tigers coach Jason Taylor provided encouraging news on Farah's condition in a post-match news conference.

"Robbie's okay. He had a bit of pain in his neck, which is why he has gone to hospital, but the doctor says it's just precautionary so we're confident," said Taylor.

"He was in good spirits when he left, so we're confident he'll be fine. It was pretty clear that it was serious. We were all concerned about him but as I say, it's precautionary.

"We don't know 100 per cent one way or the other, but he [the club doctor] is confident that he [Farah] will be fine."

A regular starter for New South Wales in recent years, Farah will hope to be cleared for a return to action ahead of the State of Origin opener on June 1.


Reynolds - a fellow NSW representative - admitted to being fearful after seeing his state team-mate lying prone on the turf at ANZ Stadium.

"Truthfully, I was very scared. It's not too often you are scared like that," Reynolds was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald. 

"I was standing over the top of him and his lip was twittering. I didn't really know what to do. You never want to see that."
