Benji Marshall and Robbie Farah, two of the most celebrated members of the Wests Tigers class of 2005, go into the weekend with their NRL careers at a crossroads.The Tigers will run on to ANZ Stadium against St George Illawarra on Sunday without Farah in their line-up after he was sensationally dropped to reserve grade by coach Jason Taylor this week.Farah is decried as prickly and difficult to get along with but beloved by Tigers fans for his part in their 2005 grand final win and 247 games of service to the club, and his career is on the line.Taylor insists Farah was axed because he wasnt gelling with young halves Mitchell Moses and Luke Brooks. However, the fact remains the NSW No.9 is fighting for his career at Concord and in the NRL.Should Taylors experiment work and the Tigers show some pluck in the run to the finals, it could spell the end of Farahs career.His axing means he wont be there to celebrate with good mate and Dragons playmaker Marshall, who marks his 250th NRL game against the Tigers.As with Farah, Marshalls future is far from certain. He is off contract at the end of the year and after the Dragons failed in their bid to lure Luke Keary to the club, and rumours of their interest in Corey Norman, the writing appears to be on the wall.Marshalls only hope is to rediscover his brilliant best and reignite the Dragons, who are 10th and clinging to the edge of finals contention after two straight losses.A person thats had that many setbacks and overcome them, the challenges of being such a superstar at such a young age, you certainly have to be mentally tough, Dragons coach Paul McGregor said of Marshall.You dont get shoulder recos from getting out of the way, you get shoulder recos if youre getting in the way.To do what hes done and come back from them and the football hes displayed over a long period of time, at international and club level, is exceptional.McGregor has swung the axe after his side was outscored 68-18 over the last two weeks with outside backs Kalifa Faifai Loa and Tim Lafai dropped for Adam Quinlan and Taane Milne.STATS THAT MATTER:* St George Illawarra are undefeated this season when managing to keep their opponents to 14 points or less.* The Tigers have scored a total of 114 points in the opening 20 minutes of matches this season, which is the most in the competition.* Six of the past eight matches between these sides have been decided by 10 points or more.- Source: Fox Sports Stats Kent Hrbek Jersey

. -- In a span of seven Washington Redskins offensive plays, Justin Tuck sacked Robert Griffin III four times. Notre Dame wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr. is in concussion protocol after leaving his teams 50-47 double-overtime Sunday loss at Texas following a big hit in the end zone.Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly said Monday it is too early to tell whether Hunter and safety Avery Sebastian -- who is also in concussion protocol after a big hit Sunday -- will be ready for Notre Dames home opener Saturday against Nevada.Hunter tweeted Monday that he is doing better and would bounce back.Hunter was drilled close to the head by Longhorns defensive back DeShon Elliott in the end zone with 30 seconds left in the third quarter. Hunter was trying to corral what would have been a 19-yard touchdown pass from QB?DeShone Kizer on third down, but the hit jarred the ball loose. Hunter was tended to on the ground for several minutes after the play.No flags were thrown and no review was held, despite new NCAA rules this season that allow replay officials to retroactively issue targetinng penalties.ddddddddddddNotre Dame had a potential game-tying 36-yard field goal blocked on the next play.We sent the clip, obviously, to the supervisor of officials with the ACC; we got confirmation back that that would have most likely have been a targeting call, Kelly said Monday during a teleconference. We just dont understand why that was not reviewed by the Big 12. I guess theyre going to be reaching out to them to find out why that wasnt reviewed, but clearly, win or lose, player safety should be at the front of this game, and we dont believe that that was the case in this instance.Hunter, a redshirt junior captain, entered this season as the Irishs lone proven option in the receiving game. Without Hunter, Notre Dame went on to complete just 3 of 7 passes for 48 yards over the course of the fourth quarter and two overtimes.
