Robbie Farah could make shock NRL return

Post by tigersrule4life » Thu 08 May, 2014 11:26 am

WESTS Tigers could receive a massive boost ahead of their blockbuster Friday night clash with the Roosters, with captain Robbie Farah a possible late inclusion in the side.

Foxsports.com.au has been told Farah will be given a fitness test on Thursday to determine whether he can be rushed back into the side at least two weeks ahead of schedule after dislocating his elbow in round six.
.
Farah returned to field training with his club on Monday after just three weeks of rehab and strength work, with Tigers coach Mick Potter confirming that Farah was likely to return in next Saturday’s clash with Cronulla.

However, his recovery has so impressed club officials that the Tigers’ most important player is now considered an outside chance to line up on Friday night.

When contacted on Thursday morning, the Tigers denied Farah would be put through his paces in a fitness test but confirmed the skipper would be involved in Thursday’s captain’s run.

He’s having a run with the boys, he’s not having a fitness test as such, but he’s having a run,” a Tigers spokesman said.

“I think it’s unlikely he’ll play. He’s more of a chance for next week.”

I think they'll be better off giving him another week rather than push things

Risk outweighs reward.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...

Cuando llegue el día, y estoy parado a las puertas del cielo, será Dios pidiendo mi perdón...

Given it's a long season, nobody expects us to win and Farah is so important to our teams sucess let him rest another week.

Farah is an inspiration to our team and glad he is playing for us.

I would play the cautious card and hold Robbie back for the Sharks game....

I think we'll see Robbie at number 18, and a decision will be made during the warm up.

robbie's injury was a freak injury with hyperextension of the elbow. he is either 100% or 0%. i said as soon as they said that the bone didn't break that he would be back in less than 2-3 weeks

Why is this a shock? A few including myself have been saying he will be back for this game. History shows Robbie is one Tigers player who always returns early.

I dont think he's over the line yet, but he will try to play on Friday thats for sure. Fingers crossed.

Return so he can play like he did against the warriors when he was injured? Play injured like sironen did in the pre-season where he broke his toe? I think they'd much better off waiting so he gets it right.

Im with you

So often we see players injured for WT and the return date getting pushed back however Farah does come back soon..

He may get some criticism at times but he is a tough cookie ..
I understand it will be a risk coming back sooner if he is not a 100% but im sure Farah knows far too well if he is ready or not

+ 1 for courage

Thought it was a chance of happening its 4 weeks tomorrow which was the normal time for that type of injury , but is it worth the risk ??

Hopefully he plays it will be a massive boost. And hopefully we can get the win.

Its a hard call isnt it. Really does seem a long shot winning this game so why risk him. But i thought we were long odds to beat Souths and we did. Guess we have to trust Robbie and the docs
