Farah strides out but will he play?

ROBBIE Farah has taken a big step towards proving his fitness for Sunday's final-round NRL game by running with his Wests Tigers teammates at Leichhardt Oval on Wednesday morning.

Farah was in an upbeat mood as he worked through a series of shuttle runs with his teammates.

The Tigers legend is pushing to recover from a broken leg in order to take the field for Sunday's do-or-die clash with Cronulla which will determine who qualifies for the finals in eighth spot.

The 35-year-old's presence provided a clear boost for his teammates, as he also completed light passing drills.

Skipper Moses Mbye, who has also been injured, trained strongly and is tipped to return at left centre. `

Farah has missed the past three games and was sporting strapping on his right leg as he ran freely.

He will retire at season's end and Sunday could mark his final game in the NRL should the Tigers go down.

The Tigers are currently enduring the longest finals drought in the NRL having missed the playoffs every year since 2011.
