For Robbie to have time with last tackle options he would be best at 2nd receiver, as would Benji. Last atckle options from dummy half often just direct the ball to one side or the other.

you mean when he yelled touch on T Rex?
Yeah okay it was a bad miss but you have to ask why our hooker is posted one-on-one with one of the biggest units on the field. He's not the first person Williams has run over...
Yeah ask Rhino in the four nations I think the team as a whole will need to take at least a month to gel and the injury toll is just making it worse

Robbie Farah is a gun.

As an attacking player, he is going to make mistakes, the same brilliant plays he pulls of lead to errors.

As for being hung for the bad mistackle, everyone that has ever laced on a boot is going to miss the occaisional tackle, ideally you dont want your hooker isolated on a strong ball runner, like T Rex, by the same token the attack team is trying to achieve just that.

All this stuff about him not being a good leader and such is a massive over reaction.

We lost by 4 points to the premiers.....were people expecting us to go thru the season undefeated

Some people on here are using Robbie's missed tackle against Rexx to help grind their axes...simple as that. Just ignore them.

Robbie's execution is a little down, understandable at the years start after off season surgery. His effort is there and so is his toughness. Taking the captaincy of him is a stupid idea and the reasons being presented for doing so are even more boneheaded.

Support your team FFS and stop with the politics..

Can't blame him for not holding that huge unit out that close to the line.
Williams ran at him and Moltzen the whole game.
If you think either of them are lacking ticker watch a replay.
It's the big guys who were not there to help him on the line at fault.
Apart from that Farah is being forced to do way too many tackles (what the hell is one of our playmakers doing making over 50 tackles?)and it's hurting his attack.
If his attack suffers then the whole team suffers.
Take some of the defensive load off him and he'll tear every team apart.

Farah was simply outstanding against Manly. He was let down defensively by our younger forwards.
