Hypothetical question



  • Hi all was just contemplating something after our win on the weekend and although our second half was a bit shaky we got the win what I was wondering though was and I’ll preface this by mentioning I understand were only one round in but just hypothetically if we can win about three of our first four games of four of our first five games what would you do with farah. The reason I ask is because I’m not a fan of breaking up a winning team to fit anyone in. What do all you guys think.



  • When Farah is fit he will be back in the team, under the instructions to get quick quality ball to our halves.



  • Given Robbie is the current SOO hooker you would expect that he would be in the 17, even if off the bench, particularly as Ballin isn’t expected back until roughly round 8. However, you never know what Taylor may do if the Tigers start the season on fire over the first 4 rounds but it would be a huge call to leave Robbie out altogether.



  • What has me most intrigued was the speed we did everything at pace in the first half against the warriors I’m just interested to see if when robbie does come back if it will slow our play down at all.



  • NSW cup .



  • Interesting was thinking the same thing yesterday however and its a big one we have still only won one game and that was only due to our first half. So its a long way off still but for mine it may Holt Robbie’s comeback until he is 100%.



  • if it ain’t broke……

    Farah on the sideline, watching.
    Dressed in a suit, fency or track, don’t care.



  • His kicking game alone makes him a auto selection and his forty odd tackles a game helps his chances. In saying that he has to get quick and early ball to the 6 and 7



  • If we start 4-0 its a fair question. It would be great if we did really.

    It would emower the coach and Robbie would have to perform. Good clubs have competition for spots we should aim for that across the paddock.

    However, lets not get ahead of ourselves. The stats say otherwise and to a decent extent.

    As much as people don’t like Farah here i hardly think Halatau would be a better starting option.

    Was gonna say the same, Halatau is not a better option than Robbie at 9.



  • You’d have to find a spot for him somewhere no matter what our start, and regardless of his off field crap, hes too good on-field not to be in the team when fit.
    Coaches like these headaches

    If many games were to occur as first game, first half on fire and second half down the cliff, bring Robbie in at half time and if he can’t stem the flow well that is when ask serious questions. But I don’t expect WT to get such a good lead in many games so will be a more difficult slog.



  • Agreed ink.

    It’s a really good headache to have if the team is winning more than they loose and Ballin to come in aswell……i honestly don’t know how his going to go about it ? Halatau will be holding some sort of Utility role on the bench as you can play him anywhere in the backrow and can cover hooker.

    If everyone fit ? i’d go

    8. Woods
    9. Farah
    10. Grant
    11. Lawrence
    12. Sironen
    13. Sue

    14. Halatau
    15. Ava
    16. Aloiai
    17. Cherrington

    Even then i’m still leaving out Edwards , Ballin , Lovett

    Edwards is back this week in the INTRUST CUP and will be a handy addition when fully fit, JT has one headache to contend and Ballin will not let anyone down.
    Keeps everyone on there toes.



  • He will play when he is fit. Hopefully he performs well enough to convince another club to take him for half prices for the remainder of his contract

    The side will be strengthened when he returns. Natural leader on the field to aid Woods. Solid defence in the middle to sure up the ruck and a good short kicking game which we currently miss.
