A sensible comment NT, especially since we now have quality dummy half replacements that have plenty of NRL experience. It hasn't been so in previous years when Farah would have to back up.
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

Sensible comments from jt. By the sounds of it could be some further late changes other than robbie.

Interesting comments about Rankin, almost as though it wasn't his decision to leave him out of the team...
Tigers for 2022!

Yeah sounded like that to me too..makes you think that if JAC is gone and still playing there must be a strong push from someone other than JT to play the best players and try and win games rather than continue the excuse of a rebuilding phase

Smart selection by O' Neil and Taylor as we back up again 5 days later for Friday night football against the Rabbits. With Cordner and Peace out we will win this game further putting pressure on Farah to go to England sooner rather than later.

Taylor and O'neill decided to rest him which I think is a wise move. .In large part due to the serious head injury he had a couple of weeks ago. Plus i would say our form without him and the 5 day turn around to Souths. A smart call all round.

Suppose you didnt bother listening to the press conference?

If he had been named and played

Snake "Typical selfish Robbie going against coaches orders wanting to back up when half fit"

Boring.

Yeh, I thought the same.
I noticed his left eye twitch 3 times as he was talking about Rankin. A sure sign he was forced to drop him and play JAC even though JAC has probably signed with Storm.

Yep. I have been let down by Farah in recent years but no one can doubt his commitment to the side. Maturity, yes, Value, yes but not his commitment.

Great decision by Taylor. It was a very tough head knock against the Dogs. We can get by without him and hopefully we will not have our post-Origin malaise like every other year.

Tough decision from Taylor. Good to see he has obviously been back by the club if rumours Farah wasn't happy are true.

Classic "if rumours Farah wasn't happy are true. " That about sums it up for me about how Farah is viewed. For many on here it seems there is no difference between rumour and truth when it comes to Farah - yet the percentage of most other rumours are found to be just that - rumours.

I said "if" mate, which is why I haven't had a go at Farah about it. Clearly, I wasn't suggesting it was fact.

In any event, I would expect a player to be annoyed if they are fit and the coach rests them, particularly someone like Robbie.

There's a reason why he's viewed that way.

Funny isn't it how players spend all year complaining about 5 day turn arounds and how it is ruining careers and putting players in danger and then when a coach rests a player from a 3 day turnaround the coach is treating the player badly

That reason may be popular on this forum but is not representative of the wider view of WT supporters as was demonstrated at CSS. I dare say even more pronounced at Leichhardt.

Don't forget the 5 people who protested at concord.

Wasn't my intention to have a go ST - just an observation. Appologies if it came across that way

Don't see what is wrong with this decision , many Clubs rest some players after Origin games .

Ballin is more than capable .
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.
