I originally voted no for Robbie for the simple fact that I'd rather we spent our time and resources developing a quality hooker. It seems that Robbie is a band-aid solution to our current problems and Im ok with that as long there is a long term plan in place for that position.

As for the constant talk about Robbie bringing his dramas to get his way, Im confident that IC is his own man and has a bit more pride in himself to allow for those antics. The difference between IC from Potter and Taylor is that he's here to help us, not build an NRL coaching career. Im pretty confident that Robbie knows that he'll be out on his arse if he tries to pull any shenanigans with IC.

I would say that Robbie did not light the fire - Tallis and Taylor did. Another way of looking at Farah is that Damien Cook had at least three first grade coaches yet it was Farah who taught him the finer points and how to handle individual opposition players. Farah has probably helped Cook become the SOO hooker. Now hopefully he can help train someone with a stronger body than Liddle. Robbie is getting so slow he will need a disabled sticker soon, it was noticeable against Australia in the World Cup but he may have just been gassed. What I am saying is that of course he is not long term. Hopefully we have a young strong person sometime in 2019. But Farah should start where he left off - with a beer on the scoreboard. I wonder if Farah and Marina are going to share a wink-wink on their next meeting. He must have made some sense that night otherwise they would not have him back now. Plus Taylor did not last much longer.
Malcolm Knox: What has happened this week is a pity for the Tigers, a pity for Jason Taylor and a pity for Robbie Farah, who had achieved more than the Big Four put together but was somehow turned into collateral damage. (SMH 25-26 March, 2017)

Now we just need Papa Jesus up in the sky to donate the Tigers a new clubhouse.

Yep! The Board has cleared the way for Ivan to sign Robbie
(SMH this morning).
We have a Hooker at last.
Leichhardt oval will be busting at the seams for his first game back.
Welcome Back.

South's still have to agree on the money. I still think it has a high probability of falling over. Souths have him on a decent wage and I can't imagine we'll be willing to pay overs for a season where we're at long odds to make the 8.

We won't have to pay too much if there's a swap.

whats wrong with the board of WT bringing a flog like him back after the way he white anted the club. Management of Invertebrates. He's no club legend. To turn the other cheek shows the desperation of the coach to meet his KPIs. We ain't making the 8 anyway

It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

With Cleary looking at bringing Robbie back for the rest of this year it has to make you think
Both Mclwrick and Godinet are gone seasons end
Liddle to play more ISC
Robbie to retire
And wests tigers on the hunt for another first class Hooker
Farah will be signed for 2019 I reckon
Then again we have Chris McQueen in Reserves who is a Top 30 Squad player and has played what 30 Minutes this year .
If form warranted and he wanted to play for say $150 - $200k for the 2019 Season don't think that would be a problem, it would be for the Farah haters.

He's gotta pass the medical 1st :twisted:

Robbie's medical is slightly different from most , he has to still be able to fit under the fence , still able to back stab fellow players and coaches , cause division with other players and create a second dressing room , run 3 metres from dummy half and yell and scream at the ref

But we don't need to worry about that , because according to Robbie he has changed :roll:
