If Cam Smith had done what Farah did tonight the commentators would be creaming themselves.

Farah blows SMITH out of the Universe in all facets of the game except Goal kicking.
Bug Smith does it week in and week out and at the top level .
Robbies had maybe three games all season that go remotely close to Smith .
Lets wait until he gets surgery in the off season and do a comparison next year because at this stage there is no comparison Smith wins KO in the first

Farah had a good game tonight IMO, not to his best but he is building and he is thinking of the time and less of himself it appears by the way he is getting the ball to others. Gets through plenty of defence each game as well.

Show me a 2011 stat that Cam Smith far excels over Robbie.

I can show you about 20 that Robbie far exceeds over Smith.

hmmm, can't say i would give farah the nod over smith, not by a long way. he has had a very ordinary season really; i know he has been injured, but he hasn't had a good year by any means.

at the risk of being negative, i do admit i get annoyed at how often he tries to get a penalty from dummy half.

still, now is a pretty good time to get back to his best, hey?

Robbie improved a lot out there but he is still miles off Cam Smiths level. He needs to play like that on a regular basis. That was one game.

Had a few chuckles reading this. I'm not sure Robbie would want to see you after a game BB. Being a massive Robbie fan I think he played a great captain's knock and adjusted his game to direct play much better than he did earlier in the season.
The tricks he applied in 2005 and the following couple of years don't work as well, and he is a marked target when attacking. He is the calm to Benji's excited play. I'd love to see him play like that for the rest of the season.
Comparison to Smith in SOO??? Come on! Look at the other 12 players Smith was playing with in those games. And if Billy Slater was our fullback (lord never!) Robbie would have 3-4 more try assists per game.

I'm confident Robbie will take the next step up against the drags, not easy to say perhaps but he is building back form.
