Wests Tigers sign Robbie Farah for 2018 Official

Post by joelw2002 » Sat 02 Jun, 2018 11:35 pm

He's off contract at the end of this year and we could offer him a 1 year contract to finish his career off at the Tigers.

I would prefer he be brought in this year before June 30 where he is really needed. Of course that is if a deal can be worked out with Souths. If all goes well for 2018 then reconsider 2019 during end of year break. Lengthy talks can be held prior to his 2018 signing to really test the waters.

I say no. He’d be a disruptive figure.
Need more props.

In the end I trust Ivan with the roster calls he makes.

If he said yes I would say great. If not then lets move on.

Sadly this poll will just another chance for some fans to lay the boot in.

Yeah. I laid the boot in big time back then but its all finished with Wests tigers now. Hopefully he gets a run with souths at the back end of the year.

Is there a more polarising figure than Robbie.

The reality is he would walk straight into this Tigers team.

He lobbed too many grenades at the club on his exit. Not just burnt the bridge, but unloaded a tonne of napalm.

Way beyond what any of the other lads did.

Don't want him near the place

Would he have another season in him? He played well the other night in a rare 1st grade appearance but would be able to perform week in week out.

Can't believe this is even considered.

Regardless of his skills or otherwise, he does not even remotely fit our team first culture.

He always had the best culture of trying his guts out every game and keeping himself fit. Surely he is humbled by now but he actually team the Bunny's team song the other night so are we sure that he would accept - first time that was. What company in WT will replace the Big Sam for him?

Farah will always be a legend of our club but what IC is trying to build at the WT I am afraid giving Farah a bus ticket would be a backward step.

Glad he played well for Souths. Great to have a dominate pack as a platform.

The culture at the WestsTigers this year has been great. Everyone is playing for each other. The attitude (win or loose) has been fantastic. Robbie could play 9 better than anyone we have and for the whole game. However culture and attitude or hard the build and easy to loose. It's probably too bigger risk bringing him into the current environment.

Since we still have the same board who punted him, the answer to this question is obvious.

Organise a rally calling for it. See if it works better than the previous one demanding the club keep him.
