No hard feelings between Farah and Burgess

No hard feelings between Farah and Burgess
Author Tanisha Stanton Timestamp Sat 21 Jul 2018, 09:54 PM

Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah said there was no hard feelings between him and Sam Burgess after a fiery clash at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.

The South Sydney enforcer was put on report for a dangerous tackle on Farah in the 18th minute of the Wests Tigers' 22-6 win over the Rabbitohs, which left the Tigers No.9 with a shiny bruise on his right lip.

But Farah didn't feel the hit was worth putting the Bunnies powerhouse on report.

"He was carrying on like he didn't get me but he got me on the mouth," Farah said.

"I don't think it was worthy of a suspension though.

"He's gets a bit fired up out there, big Sammy, but he's just a competitor and he's a winner.

"There's no hard feelings. He plays the game tough and fair, there was nothing in that."

The Tigers have now toppled two title heavyweights in as many weeks, following their 20-16 win over the Dragons last round.

Farah, who spent the first 14 rounds of the season with Souths, said he was getting as much enjoyment from being back in first grade as he was from the Tigers' recent winning run.

"For me its just about enjoying my footy," Farah said. "I know it's weird to say but results are secondary to that.

"I was slogging it away in reserve grade for most of the year this year and that was really tough mentally.

"For me to come back to a club that I never thought I'd be back at and a club that I've spent so much of my life at is pretty special."

The hooker was taken off for a HIA with 10 minutes remaining but pulled up fine after the match, celebrating on the field after full-time with his teammates and catching up with his old Rabbitohs teammates in the sheds after the game.

"I remember bits of it," he said. "I'll probably have to watch the game back.

"But it's a good tough win against, in my opinion, the best team in the competition.

"I'm grateful for the boys that made it a night to remember."

Despite being four competition points outside the top eight Farah said the squad hadn't given up hope of a late charge towards the finals.

"Our seasons not over yet," Farah said. "Mathematically we can (make the finals).

"We've just beat the Dragons and the Bunnies so it doesn't get any bigger than that at the moment - the two best teams in the competition.

"It's always easy to get up for the top teams in the competition and now we just have to build on what we've done in the last two weeks and keep that momentum rolling."

All of the Burgess brothers were having shots on Farah. Then Matulino and Taylor lined up George Burgess and smashed him :roll

Given the way that Burgess carried on I get the impression that there are hard feelings between the two. Burgess flipped his lid and what he was saying seemed like he meant it, more than just the heat of the moment.

Sam Burgess giving a dazed David Nofoaluma a bit extra for good measure before moving off him was sickening.

The cat barely took a hit up after he turned into a pro wrestler. Kept shoveling it off early. Good player but a pea sized brain on the field.

Left the dirty work to his brother who got smashed two or three times.

I can’t remember the exact quote, but I remember Burgess being interviewed last year and was asked a question about Farah, and he was pretty flippant towards him.

Have to say hate playing against him but would love to have him. The ultimate competitor. It almost felt like it was us against him at one point. Best forward in the game for mine.

In the pic is that Lawrence on the field congratulating the players, terrific if he is out of hospital

Yeah was a few shots of him in the stands with the other injured players - Reynolds etc. I didn’t even know he was in hospital lol.

I think I'll let George be the arbiter of whether there are any "hard feelings".

Who here actually thinks they can land a decent shot on Burgess 1v1? I reckon if I use a bit of speed I can send him backwards a few feet.

Never have I seen such a large human sook so much. He loses his bundle when things don't go his way.
And she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."
