Premiership-winning ex-Wests Tigers forward Bryce Gibbs has called on coach Jason Taylor to exit the club after Robbie Farah embarrassed his boss with a starring performance in the 50-16 win over the Warriors.
Days after Taylor told him he could leave the club or play reserve grade next year, Farah responded with a man-of-the-match display that featured a try, three try assists and two line breaks.
Farah’s treatment and response earned him widespread support and opened Taylor up to ridicule, led by Gibbs.
Fans chanted ‘Robbie, Robbie’ after Farah opened the scoring at Campbelltown Stadium, while others showed their support with signs or via social media.
The Tigers skipper admitted he came into the game determined to make a point.
“I was at home last night and I thought ‘I’m just going to come out and get the mojo back and play a bit of my footy’ and it came off,” Farah said.
"After the week I’ve had, to put 50 on and the performance of the boys shows how tight we are here.
"We’re off the bottom of the ladder which is the main thing.
Asked about the support he’s received, Farah said: "It gave me goose-bumps. The Tigers fans have been absolutely outstanding…the general public, family and friends…they’ve all been there to support me.
"I’ve been down on confidence all year and the support I’ve had this week has been unbelievable, it’s been overwhelming.
“It’s made a tough week easy to handle.”
