He's carrying injury and is being asked to carry an injury riddled side. I'll concede he was far from great yesterday, but it's a little early to be pulling the knives out yet.

Hope he opts for the surgery now though, you can definitely see it's affecting his game.
I'm not angry about his effort CB I am pissed about the 3 silly kick options he took in second half . Why the Tigers did not take advantage of the sun on the right side in first half just confuses me . Every club must know at this time of year that trying too field bombs is a nightmare due to the sun being in your eyes .We played a bit stupid yesterday and the one thing we can't afford to do with the injury toll is not to play with our heads switched on .

This has always been my major problem with Robbie however to be fair he hasn't done that anywhere near as much this year.

....have u been watching the bulldogs games this year? ennis has done nothing special, why he's been picked in SOO is still a mystery to me. he's an ok hooker at best but farah outshines him in every stats department. its a pity injuries have cursed our club again and jeopardized the chances of farah and lawrence this year who were almost sure things for the squad.

Agree here -

Robbie is playing at 50% of his own potential or standard this year.

Ennis will be an easy selection for SOO.

Better for Tigers anyway.

Ennis was terrible against Melbourne last night.
I never realised how much better Smith was than Farah till they played for Australia together.
Get the surgery now.

Smith is the best hooker in the game by a country mile now Robbie needs to get surgery and get his mojo back now We need him at 100% percent if we are any chance of even making the eight

It's funny that even when Farah is way way out of form and playing injured, Ennis is still not a patch on him.

I think Gidley will get picked as NSW hooker this year.

Shame for Robbie but SOO should be the last thing on his mind at the moment. Needs to go and get his op done, and come back bigger and better. I miss the real Farah :-(

From what I saw of Robbie on Sunday - I believe he shouldn't be playing, go get the operation, the groin injury is not going to get better, he will be missed, but there is no point him playing with this injury. :(

Farah says it doesn't effect him on game days....if that's true then he needs to think a bit more during games.....Heard Andrew Johns say he played with the injury for 18months represented NSW and Australia in that time...

Lets see how tough Robbie is...

I was thinking about that as well Geo,...could be that Robbie is just really out of form. Maybe Sticky had a quiet word saying he's going with Ennis and Robs dropped his bundle a bit.

He really needs to play well this week if selected, we can get them through the ruck with his scoots.

I wasn't going to mention that game but it still gets me going. Thanks for the reminder.

As for the Dally M performances there is no doubting how good Robbie can be. I just hope he gets back to that level.

Robbie is most definitely not the footballer he can be playing with this injury. I can't see why surgery hasn't yet been done. Every week longer he plays is one less closer towards the end of the season. Its effecting his play enough that he has to change the way he plays. Take the surgery.

All I can say is that Robbie has had an average start to the year and one clearly poor game, but these are by his already lofty standards. I am happy for him to stay there as long as he and the medics/coaches think it is reasonable.

BUT that overhead kick that he put out on the full last week has now overtaken Michael Buettner's soccer strike at Leichhardt as the worst kick ever by a Wests Tigers player.
