love how the media say that robbie has been in good form. he's been poor in origin (a hookers job is to pass to the player not a metre behind them), he's been poor for our club only being decent off the bench. I cant see how the media or any fans for that matter can say he's been in good form this year
p.s i know the media are just trying to make a story out of it.

People like steve who can't cop taylors reasoning to the dumping, continually bring up farahs form.

Maybe Steve thinks Ennis is playing in a better team.

Where we're the howls of protest when he wasn't picked?

Some double standards being applied on here.

True, Ennis has been great this year, but you have to admit, his Origin form is diabolical! Some players just can't produce the goods in rep games, even though they are playing great week to week at club level. I guess it has a lot to do with team dynamics. Mitchell Pearce is another one who comes to mind - awesome form for the Roosters in past seasons, terrible at Origin level.

As for Peats - I think the calls for his inclusion in Origin are premature, he's not there yet, imo. Farah was the right choice this year and he played well.
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

Serious question AHX - do you really think either Ennis or Peats would've won NSW the series? I always thought it was up to one team to beat another team, not left to one particular player, but pardon my ignorance :roll:

AmericanHistoryX wrote:Wests Tigers coach Jason Taylor has been widely criticised for dumping his highest contracted player Robbie Farah to the NSW Cup.

Plenty of reports have been describing the sacking as the result of a feud between them.

Everyone is so far off the mark. Do rugby league fans think for one minute Taylor would put his job on the line by dropping Farah because of a feud?

Absolute rubbish.

Taylor is too shrewd a rugby league brain to place his contract in jeopardy by getting rid of Farah to the detriment of the team winning.

Taylor said it was a hard decision to make, but he strongly believed his side had a better chance of beating the Dragons on Sunday afternoon at ANZ Stadium with Farah not in the side.

That’s a coaches call and despite the fact Farah is on 247 games in his 13th year with the the club. In that time he’s scored 284 points from 61 tries, 12 goals, and 16 drop goals.

The other reason Taylor’s been pilloried is for dropping the NSW Origin hooker. That too has a very valid reason behind it.

On form alone, Farah was the third best hooker in NSW behind the Sharks Michael Ennis, and Parramatta-Titans Nathan Peats.

The only reason Farah got the nod over Ennis or Peats for the three Origin games this season was the loyalty card given by NSW coach Laurie Daley.

But Ennis, in particular, was streets ahead of Farah on form.

it's not a perfect story - but it has some validity - don't necessarily agree with last sentence in story - I would change WAS to IS - but apart from that - what if this were the truth of the matter. Thanks Newtown - courageous post yourself -

i hope this helps your case - i think you need more than just a name

So what is the reference to the perfect world? If ennis played origin would there be less pressure on taylor in making this move?

That there was no animosity in Taylor dumping Farah - just pure business

For Taylor's decision to be wrong Farah doesn't need to be better than Ennis or Peats, he just needs to be better than Dene Halatau.
