Former Tigers forward Simon Dwyer will receive $5 from every adult ticket and family pass sold at Wests' game against the Storm in Round 21.

After the success of the NRL's Rise For Alex Round, the game has taken a stronger stance to ensure players are compensated for horrific injuries.

Dwyer told the Macarthur Advertiser the NRL has been too slow to react in this area.

"The game says it is looking out for us but it's not.

"If there are no players there are no games. We are the ones putting our bodies on the line and ultimately we are not getting compensated for career-ending injuries," a frustrated Dwyer told the Macarthur Advertiser.

The Alex Mckinnon Foundation received over $1 million last week but Dwyer says Mckinnon isn't the only one whose life has suffered because of rugby league.

The 25-year-old had his NRL career cut short after suffering nerve damage in a tackle against the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2011.

Dwyer still wears a sling three years later.

The back-rower has been involved with the Tigers since his injury, with his contract to expire at season's end.

Next Friday week, August 1, the rugby league community will band together for The Roar For a Cause: Tribute to Simon Dwyer event to be held at Wests Leagues Club, Leumeah.

Tickets will be $120, for more info call 4915 2345 or visit proticket.com.au.

Awesome News For Bunnies Fans

South Sydney enforcer Sam Burgess cleared of any "serious damage".

[AAP Reports] South Sydney enforcer Sam Burgess says he's been cleared of any "serious damage" to his right shoulder but could still miss part of the NRL season.

Burgess underwent scans on Tuesday morning after injuring himself in the second half of the Rabbitohs' 34-18 romp over Canberra at GIO Stadium.

The English international was upbeat on social media after receiving the results, but gave no indication as to whether he still needed time on the sidelines.

"Scan results on my shoulder were positive this morning. No serious damage. Thanks for everyone's messages and well wishes. Back to business," he posted on Twitter.

Burgess, who's heading to Bath in England's top rugby union competition at season's end, has a history of shoulder problems.

While it was his left shoulder that plagued him in 2010-11, he previously underwent a full reconstruction on his right shoulder during his time with Bradford in the English Super League.

Post-match on Monday, Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire said the shoulder hadn't been dislocated or subluxed this time round but admitted the injury had Burgess worried.

"Sam is a bit concerned about it. Until you get the scans you won't know exactly what it is," Maguire said.

"Sam said it was sore internally. We'll have to play it by ear."

While the Rabbitohs jumped to second spot behind Manly with the win, Burgess's shoulder problem was just one of a number of concerns to their title hopes encountered during the match.

Captain John Sutton will miss up to three weeks after suffering a medial ligament damage in his knee and Kyle Turner went off with concussion in the first half.

Forward Ben Te'o is also set to sit out Sunday's clash with Newcastle after being charged with a grade one dangerous throw for a lifting tackle on Jarrod Croker.

He'll cop a one-game suspension regardless of his plea, but risks a two-match ban if he unsuccessfully fights the charge.

Souths might have moved up to second on the NRL ladder following their dominating 34-18 win over the Raiders on Monday night, but it might have been costly for Sam Burgess and John Sutton with the pair to have scans today on respective shoulder and knee injuries.

Sutton is expected to be out for three games, while Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire told Triple M NRL Burgess is fearing the worst.

"He's obviously concerned because there's a lot in front of him," he said.

"But until we actually sort of work out what it si Im just making it up really. but there is some concern there, definitely."

Souths could also have a problem with Ben Te'o under scrutiny for a lifting tackle in the second half. Watch the video below from the 2.33-minute mark.

Sydney Roosters captain Anthony Minichello says the premiers can cover the loss of marquee Sonny Bill Williams as they run to the finals.

Williams injured his thumb in the club's 16-12 loss to the Newcastle Knights which will see him miss three to four weeks.

The fullback says the team possess a representative back-row which even in SBW's absence is one of the best in the NRL.

"We've got players that are coming into the side that are very capable and know how we play so ,although we still have players on the sidelines at the moment, hopefully we can get a couple of those back in the next few weeks," Mini said.

"There's not long now, there's six weeks to go, you want to try and build momentum leading into the finals and you give yourself the best shot at it."

Minichello also hinted a possible return for representative centre Michael Jennings when they play the Dragons on the weekend.

The 26-year-old has been sidelined for six weeks with a back injury he suffered in State of Origin II. Jennings' wing partner Daniel Tupou will be missing and may not return until Round 25.

Triple M's Gorden Tallis won't back down on his comments, revealing feud between Robbie Farah and coach Mick Potter

There's been a big blue between Gorden Tallis, Robbie Farah and the Wests Tigers, with the former Broncos and Origin captain telling Triple M NRL there's been a monumental fallout between Farah and coach Mick Potter.

"Farah to my face when I was at Triple M last year, on a [Triple M NRL] Saturday show, he told me that Michael Potter can't coach," revealed Tallis.

Now, this caused a massive blow-up after the match at ANZ Stadium yesterday, when at full-time Gorden Tallis approached Robbie Farah… and the Wests Tigers captain tore into Gorden.

"[Tigers prop] Aaron Woods had to go up and drag Robbie away and Gorden stood his ground. As you'd imagine, Gorden has never backed away from anything in his life so they were standing there and Aaron Woods had to diffuse the situation and pulled him away," said Matty. Listen to both pieces of audio below.

Meanwhile, Wests Tigers coach Mick Potter is safe for now with the club deferring contract negotiations until the end of they NRL season. Read the club statement here.

Earlier On Triple M NRL with Matty Johns

On Sunday, Robbie Farah's manager Sam Ayoub defended his client who has been noticably quiet on the coaching future of Mick Potter.

Ayoub told Sunday Triple M NRL with Matty Johns, Farah approached CEO Grant Mayer six weeks and said he wanted no part of the decision.

"Robbie directly went into Mayer's office and said...I don't want any say or input into what you do with the coach. Our job is to play your job is to administer and make decisions about coaches so leave us out of it," Ayoub said on Sunday Triple M NRL.

The manager hosed down conflict rumours between Farah and Potter, calling them 'laughable'.

"Mick Potter lives below Robbie Farah, they play tennis together, quite regularly when they get a chance... they get on like a house on fire."

Triple M NRL's Gorden Tallis fired up when Ayoub accused him and others of media build-up.

"Farah to my face when I was at Triple M last year, on a Saturday show, he told me that Michael Potter can't coach, he told me.

"Robbie told me to get my facts right, my facts came out of Robbie's mouth," Tallis said on Sunday Triple M NRL with Matty Johns.

Wests Tigers coach Mick Potter responded to reports he will be dumped by the club this afternoon.

Potter played a relatively straight backed when quizzed by the boys on Sunday Triple M NRL with Matty Johns.

"I don't think it impacts on the team, it's a side issue for me and I'll address it accordingly and get on with today's game.

"I've got a fair idea [of where this is coming from] and I'm comfortable with what I'm doing but it's a bit of a distraction from what I'm trying to do today," Potter told Sunday Triple M NRL with Matty Johns. Click here to read more of this story.

Farah's Feuds

Check out the hooker's feisty encounters which resemble a series of soap operas rather than a game show

Farah's feuds

In light of Robbie and Gordie's spat yesterday, we surveyed the archives and came up with the top six feuds involving the Tigers skipper.

Let's play

1. Gorden Tallis

In a heated discussion with Farah's manager on Sunday Triple M NRL with Matty Johns, Gordie revealed the hooker told him Mick Potter couldn't coach.


Tallis
who was the sideline commentator for the Tigers match later that afternoon, caught up with Farah after the game and had a lengthy off-air discussion which he chose to keep confidential. The hooker denied Tallis' comment in his post-match press conference.

2. Anthony Watts

But Farah's fights are not only verbal, take a look at his on-field biff with former NRL badboy Anthony Watts.


3. Matty Johns

Remember the time Triple M NRL's Matty Johns accused Robbie Farah's Tigers of being 'soft'?

Watch this uncomfortable exchange. How young does Matty look?


4. Benji Marshall

There has always been speculation two of the Tigers' most influential players in history could never get along.

Farah was always defensive when talking about the pair's relationship and ultimately the club was not big enough for both of them.

5. Tim Sheens

tim sheens, robbie farah

Of course this isn't the first time Farah has feuded over a coach.

It is reported Farah led a player revolt against then Wests coach Tim Sheens to be terminated at the end of the 2012 season.

The rake was much more vocal of his desire for Sheens to stay but in the end the West captain got his wish. Could we be going back in time?

6. Mitchell Pearce

Our very own Supergrass revealed on the eve of Origin III last year, NSW hooker Robbie Farah and Blues halfback Mitchell Pearce had a spat.

The insider said the two disagreed as to who was in control and calling the shots for the decider.

The Blues went down by four points.

Honourable mention - Beau Ryan/Bryce Gibbs

Here are a few mates having a crack at each other (Not sure if serious).

@therealbeauryan: @robbiefarah @bryceegibbs what's the difference between Farah's tackle technique and a turnstile??........................Nothing #Allarms

@robbiefarah: @therealbeauryan @bryceegibbs great joke mate. Hey how's that 18th man jersey for Country origin look in your pool room? haha #nuffie

@robbiefarah: @therealbeauryan @bryceegibbs terrible comeback champ. Wonder if sharks will re-sign you or brush you like the Tigers did? #unwanted

@therealbeauryan: @robbiefarah @bryceegibbs good luck at judiciary tomorrow rob. Charged with a grade 1 ugly nose #biggerthanavatar

@robbiefarah: @therealbeauryan @bryceegibbs almost as good as your bondi chest #farfrommanly

Goden Tallis and Sam Ayoub on Triple M

Paul Kent also fired a question raised by a caller who said Farah threatened to dump Ayoub as his manager if the Tigers didn't keep James Tedesco (who he also manages).

"Robbie had the s**ts and rang me and we spoke about it. He is entitled as club captain to talk about players, he doesn't do it with just me, he's done it with other blokes who manage the younger players.

"At no stage did Robbie threaten to sack me, in actual fact he came saw me and asked what went on."

The Gold Coast Titans is the latest team to put their hand up for a possible salary cap breach.

Current CEO Graham Annesley blew the whistle on the club's finances which he inherited from past bosses Michael Searle and David May.

Reports the contract of former captain Scott Prince and the 'Titans of Tomorrow' campaign will but put under the microscope as the NRL gets to the bottom of their $400,000 infringment.
