Saw him clutching @ his crotch towards the end of the game.
Didn't look happy...
He's so important to the team so it's going to suck if he has to sit out a few weeks for surgery.

Farah looked really angry all game. Played REALLY well though. If he can play that well with an injury he needs to suck it up for the sake of the team. He isn't on $400,000+ a season to take 8 weeks off for optional surgery. He's a footy player and he needs to tough it out like one.

Hahaha! I loved the angry face. In fact, a few of them had on the angry face when they were coming down the tunnel for the start of the second half. I remember thinking then that we were gonna win - they looked so determined!

That was a champion effort. He`s the best number 9 in the world when he plays with aggression like he did tonight.

That was his best game of the season so far and he should figure with Marshall and Dwyer in the Dally M points for the game. Hopefully the injury improves slowly and he'll certainly appreciate the week off when the Tigers have the bye.

Exactly what I want out of him. He did everything right.

I have no faith in him but if he plays like that consistently we will win a lot of games.

Absolutely a great effort! He spoke before the game about the embarassment of being flogged by souths in the same round last year and it looks like he took that with him onto the field as additional motivation.

Great to see the Robbie Farah of old back on the park! And to play that well whilst carrying his injury makes him deserve even more credit, he really stepped up for us tonight.

When Robbie & Benji are firing we look incredibly lethal.

Great performance. Not just best performance of the year but also best performance in 12 months.

Faffy played a very controlled game. Didn't try to over play his hand and had great vision and made good choices from dummy half. Could have got a few penalties tonight, as I saw atleast 3 occasions he caught the markers offside but the refs didn't ref!!!

What I dont get is, im pretty sure he had the injury during the off season, so why did he not operate then, or has it gotten worse since the comp started?

I wouldn't be surprised if once Fulton is back, and if the injury is still a concern he will operate. Probably mid season when we get the 2 byes, origin will weaken a few teams and that will lessen the impact of him missing. Fulton will play rake during this period. And then he will be back fit for our march to premiership glory.

Seems the discovery of the secondary tear has enabled proper management of the injury again

You know it's gonna be a good game when he takes the line early.

Looked like the groin wasn't as bad this week? At least early!
