Jesus stop whining and enjoy the moment.

One of our best ever is coming back.

This just feels right ffs sit back and enjoy.

And ps he is a mighty fine footballer who bleeds for this club.

He will get one he'll of a cheer at Leichhardt.
Oh.... , but theyre not the real supporters, they're just the people to come to watch the games and actually hope that we will win, , and probably think that , is more likely to occur with someone who can actually play in, arguably, the most important
position in the game :D

Wests Tigers have today confirmed that Life Member Robbie Farah will be returning to the club for the remainder of the 2018 NRL season.

Farah, who has played 247 first-grade games for Wests Tigers, has signed a new playing contract until the end of the current season.

Under the new agreement Farah will begin training with Wests Tigers this week and is eligible for selection for the club's next game against the Gold Coast Titans at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday 1 July.

Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary welcomed Farah back to the club.

"I look forward to welcoming Robbie back home to Wests Tigers this week," said Cleary.

"Robbie brings a wealth of experience back to the club in a position where we feel we need some additional support at this stage of the season.

"All of my discussions with Robbie have been very positive, he understands the direction that the club is heading in, and how he can help contribute to that," he said.

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said that Farah fills the club's final roster position for 2018.

"Robbie is a quality player and will bring some valuable experience to our playing group," he said.

"It's important to note that over the last two years this club has undergone significant change and we are building towards something special here.

"We're incredibly proud of the position that the club is in now and look forward to welcoming back a Life Member in Robbie," he said.

Farah's signing along with that of Moses Mbye now fulfils Wests Tigers roster requirements for 2018.

All I ask is keep him away from Liddle.
And away from any form of kicking the ball.
Hands only.

I can picture you BBF refreshing the Souff's official site every 2 minutes..waiting waiting..
I'm sure he's got a box of tissues at hand ready for either eventuality...
Unfortunately he cannot be two places at once. I would have loved to see him in a GF at Bunnies but also I don't want to see WT become poop and their games unwatchable. So is happy with any eventually. I am in Sydney for weekend approx 15 July if he is at LO BE THERE. I will shout all you mob beers.

For me, its just like when Field, Hoppa and Bwaif played for us. You gotta like him for 80 mins a week and get behind the boys.

Im worried about Cleary now after this.

I recall reading just recently that the board agreed to let him go on a proposal submitted by JT. And they have agreed that he return at the request of IC.

I commend the board for supporting the decisions of the coaches.

And the last sentence of the release should also end some other rumours "Farah's signing along with that of Moses Mbye now fulfils Wests Tigers roster requirements for 2018."

As for Farah it's a good move given the options. He no longer holds the power he once did and is no longer captain. He can just get on and play.

He must be doing something right as Cook raves about him and the leadership he has given him. He will do wonders for us moving forward and i think he will play so well he will be playing next year also..

NO more ET as hooker is the best news we have had for weeks

Lets just hope he can convince our forwards to get in and do some work instead of the back taking 4 hit ups a set.
