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.

I honestly can't believe this is actually happening. Never in a million years would I thought this would ever happen. It was weird enough Benji coming back, but now Farah returning as well is just plain bizarre! I'm living in bizarro world 😳

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.
So if IC has written off Liddle , Godinet and Killa

What is the plan for 2019 and beyond

If Liddle is still the plan for the future you stick with him and develop him on the run , like clubs do with so many other footballers ie Brooks

The 2018 list off contract is Smith , Buhrer, Pritchard ,Rein , Segeyaro , JMK , Cherrington and Farah

None of which bar Rein fill me with much confidence long term (No way Cam is coming to the WT's )

We've been developing Brooks since Nathan Cleary was playing Harold Mathews :lol: :lol: .

That's all we do just sign average squad players.... 3 average hookers at our disposal :brick:
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.

from Souths Warren:

BREAKING NEWS:

Beau Ryan (who has inside information) has broken the following news on morning radio concerning South Sydney…

Russell Crowe has vetoed the release of Robbie Farah who will not be released (Crowe is adamant)

Crowe will not leave Souths vulnerable should something happen to Damien Cook over the origin period or for the rest of the year

Crowe was also not going to let the ONLY feasible replacement for Cook over the origin period walk out the door when he is most needed

Farahs experience will add a lot to Liddles development whilst not quite ready for the rigors of NRL he has shown potential and with a injury free off season and a good preseason he could be anything next year and with a job on offer for Farah after football if he's not needed to play next year would make a good addition to the coaching staff

Goes to show the media are a pack of arseholes ( anything for a story ) , technically Farah or Cleary have never stated publicly that this was about to occur but at the same time they have never publicly denied this was on the pipe line behind the scenes .

I think it's in Crowe's best interest to keep Farah in the event of a injury to Cook but by gee what a Circus :lol:

I think it was meant as a joke. Isn't Beau the guy who sabotaged Farah's restaurant?

But when Robbie was at Bunnies I can't recall him trashing Tigers whereas Ennis puts the boot into the Doggies.

Even if Beau is wrong I think that that would be the right thing for Souths to do. They have a chance to have a solid shot at the premiership but if Cook goes down or needs a break after origin they leave themselves in a bad position and let the opportunity slip. If it was my club I know what I would want to happen.

In saying that we need a dummy half and Farah appears to be our only option for the rest of this year.
