Wests Tigers would like to clarify media reports regarding Robbie Farah’s future with the Club.

Farah met with Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe today with details of those conversations set to remain confidential.

Farah still has two years left on his contract with the Club, with reports of a new playing contract being offered to him incorrect.

Justin Pascoe said that the Club would continue to work with Farah and his management regarding his playing future with Wests Tigers.

Wests Tigers will not accept terms within any release that puts the Club in further financial risk and will strive to create an environment that allows all players, including Farah, to thrive.

“We will continue to work closely with Robbie and his management to come up with an agreement that meets the needs of both parties,” said Pascoe.

“Robbie still has two years left on his playing contract with Wests Tigers and at this stage remains a part of the Club’s plans for the 2016 season.

“We are looking at a number of options with Robbie, including what role he may play with Wests Tigers once he finishes his playing career,” he said.

“Robbie is approaching 250 games with Wests Tigers and any Club would be open to having a player of that experience involved in an Ambassador role after their retirement.

“We are committed to building a successful and sustainable Wests Tigers both on and off the field and this will be taken into account when a decision regarding Robbie’s future with the Club is made,” he said.

Anyway Pascoe makes sense

We cant be paying 700-800 Grand a year to have one of our best players play elsewhere

it is absurd surely

So is signing another hooker when you’re already paying a SOO hooker 900k.

Manly are paying Ballin, he is under contract to them until the end of 2017, same year he comes off contract with us.

Just reading this again, Im wondering if a compromise isnt being looked at by Pascoe re: early retirement for Robbie end of 2016.
Meet halfway, play half your remaining contract and a nice cushy ambassador role for 2017 after becoming a one club/250 game player

“Robbie still has two years left on his playing contract with Wests Tigers and at this stage remains a part of the Club’s plans for the 2016 season.

He mentions two years on the contracts, but hes only in the clubs plans for season 2016?

“Robbie is approaching 250 games with Wests Tigers and any Club would be open to having a player of that experience involved in an Ambassador role after their retirement

.

Robbie is on 238 games so likely barring serious injury will hot 250 season 2016 if he stays.

Just a thought.

Thats what im thinking

The Ceo is looking from a dollars and sense point of view.

Get the 2 children in a room and tell them to get on with it in the best interest of the club.

Robbie is no longer captain so why cant taylor just forming his own side anyway with new leaders.

Maybe 2016 can be Robbie’s last unless he gives up origin in 2017.

We cant afford to have our SOO rep being paid 700-800 to play elsewhere.

Like I said it makes no sense and Taylor needs to maybe accept this is unsatisfactory and Robbie giving up the captaincy is maybe an agreement met halfway.

I like what has been said in this instance. He can go elsewhere but not if we get hammered financially.

His entire salary? We’re getting him for $0 for both years?

“Manly are paying Ballin”

Doesn’t mean we aren’t paying him too does it?

Via press release He is telling other clubs if they are interested in Farah they need to get serious about offering fair compensation, otherwise he will play for us.

At the same time they are saying to farah’s management how about taking $500k per season for the next 4yrs, 2 of which we pay when you are retired.

All these details were supposed to remain confidential but farah’sfarah’s management continues to play games. Anyone who thinks Farah is interested in anything other they himself is kidding……
