I thought he would be first picked for the Panthers game after his efforts against the Bulldogs. He will be on the bench for next week. Farah will start at 9 in my opinion.

I think you will see Robbie Farah at 7 with him at 9 hope Chris Lawrence And Tim Moltzen are good to go this week.

I like him but sorry we have the best hooker in the NRL. If Iosefa is good enough he can slot in somewhere else.

Robbie controls the game so well and in my opinion hes not that effective at 7.

pretty sure moltzen should be gone from fullback, subsequently moving him to the bench spot.
beau ryan was once again brilliant. high ball is NEVER a problem.
but yeah, see ya reddy. bring in one of the 20's or something we need some pace.

Iosefa provides plenty. Underrated player. Our next Utai.

idol worship will not win us premiership. farah doesnt control the game all that great from 9 to be honest. he passes the ball 1 out off the ruck and takes the occassional scoot. tonight iosefa did the same but with alot more impact..

iosefa to #7 is stupid. he just played the game of his life probably our best player on park in the #9. farah can cope with the change and the #7 suits his game more. atleast then he might do more genereal kicking practice

mtd come on? Farah tells everybody else what to do on literally every play. He does way more than take the odd scott and pass.

maybe thats the problem. the players around him are not morons.

farah gets in there and passes them the ball. yes he does some organising, which is part of the hooker role, but my point is iosefa did the exact same thing tonight and seemed to be alot more effective. our forwards actually made metres. we had momentum around the middle of the ruck.

i think people (not neccesarily you) think that he is a genius that reads the play and magically opens holes for our forwards. he doesnt. there is nothing apart from his name and stigma in the club that justifies keeping him there ahead of iosefa if we are going on FORM. love farah as much as the next bloke, but iosefa showed he is the better choice hooker at the moment for the benefit of the WT team.

Farah at half has been tried, tested and FAILED over and over again but hey let's try it again it might work for the sixth time...

Agreed. Why on earth out Farah back at half back?...Surely- SURELY there must be another option....Humble at least? Miller?... He's a great player at hooker- enough with players out of position, already!!!!

My God. Iosefa played well but lets not go crazy. No I don't think Farah is superman but he is a far better player than Iosefa. How good did we look in the first 30 when he was at 9 compared to the last 50? as far as I'm concerned we looked lost in attack from the 30 minute mark. And yes there was a shuffle, but that shuffle would be pretty much the same side we field next week except for someone else playing centre other than Fulton.

As far as I'm concerned Farah was completely ineffective as soon as we moved to the halves. He was cutting them up when he was at hooker until the 30m mark and made some good metres, scored a try, gave fulton space for the second try.

Iosefa has natural skills and is a strong runner (Id play him lock and he can chime into dummy half when he wants). But while he is a great runner, very strong and fast, no way does he get us going forward like Farah does and he also doesn't overly set up our kickers well on the last. Everytime our kicker got it in the second half tonight they pretty much had a man on him. I could say more, but i don't want to appear like i don't like Iosefa, as i do, but Farah is a far better player.

Putting Farah to the halves nullifies what Farahs good at (Which is really just dummy half play....hes not overly strong, quick, elusive etc).
