Tigers lose Heighington for Knights clash

The latest from Tiger town

Brian Smith sticking with a winning formula

The Wests Tigers will be without key forward Chris Heighington when they clash with the in-form Knights on Sunday.

Despite being named in coach Tim Sheens' starting team, Heighington has failed to recover from an ankle injury he sustained against the Storm last week.

A backrow replacement is yet to be named but crowd favourite Daine Laurie could be included in the final 17 after being named on a five man bench.
