Press Conference: NRL Round 25
Sun 30th August, 05:02PM
Wests Tigers NRL Head Coach Jason Taylor and captain Robbie Farah spoke to the media following the side’s dominating 50-16 victory over the New Zealand Warriors at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Taylor was quick to praise the skipper for his man of the match performance, and was happy the side played well for departing stalwarts Keith Galloway and Pat Richards.
“I thought Robbie played great today," Taylor said.
"The whole team was really strong and they laid a great platform.
“It was a great day for Keith [Galloway] and Patty [Richards] and everybody at the club because it has been a tough year. They’re legends of the club.
“As we’ve done in numerous times this year we’ve can shown what we can do, we just need to build on that consistency going forward and every week."
Captain Farah spoke of the importance to secure victory with the side’s goal to get off the bottom of the competition table heading into the final round of the regular season.
“I was keen for a big game," he said.
There’s no doubt it’s been a tough week, we needed a win.
“We spoke before the game coming here to get off the bottom of the ladder and send those two boys off with a win in their last home game.
“We wanted to put in a performance to do that and we achieved both those things.”
