NT NEWS. 27 P U B : NTNE-WS-DA-TE:30-AGE:27 CO-LO-R: C-M Y-K Tigers turn corner with Rabbitohs their next victims WESTTIGERSVRABBITOHS Robbie Farah MICK Potter says the mood around the Wests Tigers has been lifted immeasurably this week after the Luke Brooksinspired win over St George Illawarra last Saturday. Brooks will be unable to play again this season after a scintillating debut against the Dragons because of salary cap restrictions but coach Potter has sensed a difference in his players mood ahead of tonights clash with South Sydney at Allianz Stadium. It was good for everyone at the club, Potter said. Those young players did really well and we played a different way. There was bit more offload, a bit more flamboyance and freed up Benji (Marshall) to play his run ning game which he is known for and he excelled. The game will be skipper Robbie Farahs record 202nd appearance for the jointventure, eclipsing Chris Heighingtons milestone, in addition to Marshall bringing up his double century of games for the Tigers. Farah returns after a month-long absence due to a broken knuckle and said theres a determination to make amends for the humiliating performance against Souths earlier this year. In what was the lowest point of a dismal season, Potters decision to start Marshall on the bench backfired terribly as Michael Maguires side cruised to a 54-10 victory. We dont want that happening again to us. It was a pretty embarrassing night for us, Farah said. I think they were up 24-0 after 20 minutes. It was a really tough night. We need to start well and match them early. With the Roosters losing to Cronulla on Monday, a Rabbitohs win would return them to the top at least until the Roosters host Gold Coast putting Souths in pole position for the last-round clash for the minor premiership.
