Apart from the silly pass that led to the first try he was real good tonight

His kicking game was invaluable all night

Kicking game was very good. Much better performance tonight.

My wishes came true when he started to take some ownership and kick

It just takes pressure off the halves when you have a No 9 who has a decent kicking game.

Pleased with how he went tonight
Well done Robbie Farah leading the team to a well deserved victory

He controlled the game from dummy half. His kicks early in the tackle count he the dogs reeling.

His kicking to the corners and open ground went a long way to not only dominating field position but winning us the game. Numerous sets of six the doggies were starting on their own try line. Good to see from Farah and all whilst not over playing his role.

I really think his quality kicking tonight took the pressure of Brooks and Moses which in return allowed their attacking plays to flourish!

Ehhhhhhh he made a few good kicks but he didn't run the ball once, no line breaks like in other games. You're just saying he was better because we won. He was good but I reckon he's had good games this year in losing performances.

triple M commentators said he had to push hard to play this 'important' game with the shin injury.

maybe he didnt want to run it as much because of that combined with a speed slowdown, noticed a couple of backs scooting from dummy half.

No I'm saying it because in my opinion it was his best game this year....I have also given him praise in the games we have lost...

Fair enough man. I just think he's been dealt with quite harshly this year when he's been pretty solid all year.

I agree with Geo. Robbie was very good tonight. He has a great kicking game, and our halfs will benefit greatly from having Robbie in the side helping them along.

Robbie Farah...a true captain leading the young ones and setting an example of how to execute a great kicking game...

While still letting the young halves play what's in front of them,most of all he was building confidence in them...fantastic effort tonight by all the players...THE PENNY HAS DROPPED...

It was his best game under the structure of Taylor. Why?

He played like a traditional hooker and allowed the 1, 6 and 7 control the game from first receiver. I can't remember Farah once getting into first or second receiver.

Controlled the ruck and an excellent kicking game.

Finally the structure is working and Brooks noted it in his interview with Johns after the match. "Total Football" from the Sheens' years is almost gone.

It just shows how important he is to our team. He finds form and we're looking great. It was built on good forward work too. Woods is in stellar form, Sue was terrific and Lodge from the bench added some mongrel. Great effort from the boys.
