There is a chance of Farah playing at Campbelltown on Sunday. Will spice up the ISP match.

Well thought out Balmainian
Of course you are right.
Allthe crap decisions that the club made ,
all the crap players that we have had to put up with , all the good players that we couldn’t hold on to, all the garbage coaches that we brought into the club .... is Robbie Farah’s fault.
He’s the reason that we were rubbish,,
One of the few players that could be relied on to put 100% effort in every time he ran onto the field
Yeah right, laughable
yeah .......... right.

In that case lets bring him back and go win a comp ... now that's laughable.
Pretty sure i said for the last five years he was here we went nowhere........Am i wrong mate?
Youre the one that linked him to us going nowhere, or are you now saying that it wasnt all his fault.

The reasons that we went nowhere, are mainly the ones that I listed .
But I forgot probably the main reason that we were a basket case was a dysfunctional CEO,
Maher was a Fool, To say the least.

Not named in ISP.

Named at 18th man for souths but Cook might be still struggling after the knee he copped in origin.

Its easy to see your love for Farah blinded you from the words i said.

I'll repeat it once more than your on your own, I said "in the last 4-5 years he was here we went nowhere"

Not he is the soul reason we didn't go anywhere, but he was part of the reason.
You cant interpret anything any possible way you like, Yes we had a number of mind boggling things happen over the years and a crowd of rubbish players come an go.
Farah was once a great hooker.......Once.
His last few years here i didn't see the same player i once had, His form dwindled his origin ego took over and he barely played 3-4 rounds in the back half of most seasons due to injury or friction with someone in the club.
He became A PART of the reason we went nowhere.

again yes to a good hooker
Not Farah

I like it. We can really use him. Maybe it wasn't farah but the three others that had a more polarising influence on the playing group.
Should be a good influence / mentor for liddle. But will brooks and reynolds/marshall get good service? I reckon his had a similar humbling experience playing second fiddle this year.
Is his contract still on our cap?

I have no problems if this comes to fruition however I still believe we need another decent hooker for 2019 and beyond. Still be convinced that Liddle can handle the rigors of week in, week out NRL.
Farah or Liccha, it would be Farah every day.

What a spin out if we have Robbie and Benji finishing their careers with the Tigers. They have been legends for the club over the years. On the field he is better than ET, Godinet, Mcilwrick and is a good mentor for Liddle. I was against it as the club should be looking to a long term option and Farah last days were damaging but I like the move.

If anything it provides a storyline if our finals hopes go out the window over the next two weeks.

This could mean Cleary would be persisting with Liddle in reserve grade for the remainder of the year, which should mean he is alot more prepared to be first choice and an 80 min hooker starting next season.
It's a rare ability to be able to manage player expectations and emotions like that. If Cleary was excited about having marshall back I bet he'd be even more excited about having Farah back. In a way I'd say he'd want to prove that he is an important inclusion in the team and let him contribute where he sees fit, rather our previous coach who handled it much differently. Still I think that whole saga was more salary related first and fore most.

Given the way he played in the 2 games Cook was out, ain’t no way Souths are realeasing him for this year. He’s their insurance policy for Cook.
