And reality is Robbie Farah has moved on, he looks happy and cares less where he plays.

Took a while but good for him.

All parties have moved on.

Now back to our hooker crisis. . . . .
Its an opinion!

Probably cos he doesn’t have the stroke at Souths. Just another ham and egger,

He did play well and I'd say the coach and fans are very lucky to have him there to fill the DH role when, and if he is needed. A luxury that most teams dont have.

Had a great game considering he hasn't played first grade for 9 months.

80 minutes
62 tackles
Try assist
5 MT

He didn't overplay his hand, only ran the ball 6 times and put 2 kicks in. Missed tackles seen to come in the last 10 minutes when the entire Souths team ran out of gas.

Was the top Supercoach scorer for the game also

At $800k It's not quite a luxury.

Didnt think his salary was anywhere near that this year Gallagher. If so makes him more of a luxury - one that most couldn't afford.

I thought he was on 400k this year

Don't get me wrong , when all the Farah to Canberra gossip started I jumped in added him to one of my Fantasy Draft sides just in case

Bloke still has it , just as long as he doesn't try and bring it back to Leichhardt we can all live in harmony , well apart from BBF .....

Luckily for him , North Sydney Oval is a beautiful place to go every second week

They are good stats

What I watched last night was typical Farah but the 62 “tackles” made me laugh. He clings on for dear life always being carried until the cavalry arrives.

Wasn't counting - you say he ran 6 times - was caught out 5 times, ran about 20 metres.
He only thinks he is as quick as he was 5 years ago.

I don't think anyone can afford $800k in a reserve grader. But if he's not on that fair enough. Could be handy if Cook gets injured.

Ran for 54m but yeah nothing special.

Agree that he doesn't have the speed he once had, but going back a few years he would of overplayed his hand. 5 runs and 2 kicks, I think he has had plenty of humble pie and taken his involvement back to where it should be.

His service was good until the end of the game where I guess he was cooked.

Doubt he will see much more first grade, unless Cook gets injured.

I think he will end up at a different NRL club next year if they have an inconsistent hooker. Probably has 2 years left in him.

If he was prepared to take a backseat to Liddle and help mentor him he would be solid cover for us but doubt it will happen.

Wouldn't want him anywhere near Liddle myself - in fact wouldn't want him anywhere near the team, now or ever.

Takes hundreds of years to get rid of toxic material.
