It is reported that the Tigers would pay half on next years salary, so it would only cost $400,000-$500,00.

Also JT he was dropped because the halfs were not getting quality ball, we already have a hooker that dose that

No thanks i smell another benji.
There is 1 very big difference between the 2 , with all due respect to Benji , his main weapon in attack was his speed and elusiveness . Unfortunately because of his age , that has all but gone .Where as with Farrah , it's his all round ability to organize and direct the attack , as I had already said earlier , his ' football smarts ' , and it can only get better with age .
Love him , or loathe him , you can't take that away from him .

Absolute perfect fit for the Dragons then, thats the type of players Mcgregor wants, Mcgregor can teach him to play Dragons footy.

Yep, Robbie is that good, he organized Taylor to put him in reserve grade, his football smarts are definitely serving him well with age.

Isn't this where the season started talking about this over inflated dud footballer coming to St GI?

20 rounds on and again we get linked to a reject from another club nothing ever seems to change with us.

If people here thing Mary is a control freak and not letting the so called attacking coach have any input wait til this wanker comes here.

By bringing Farah to the club they can save on the need for a coach as Robbie rules the the gameplay. By also re-signing Benji the club would not need a CEO, recruitment manager or media manager as Benji & Farah control the lot. The financial saving would be huge and the Board could move all our home games to ANZ stadium to be near Robbie and Benjis homes

Just embarrassing. Players like Nathan Peats, James Segeyaro and the Cowboys prodigy Brandon Smith have switched clubs, and we're left here deciding between the dreadful Rein and the past-it Farah.

More reason to bring in a new coach asap. Planning and recruitment decisions need to be made

Yeah we seem to like the old hookers dont we? :)
He may well be our next luke priddis/ Simon wolford, so yes to Farah, but on the proviso that he won't be playing the full 80 minutes and that he has to mentor one of the young kids in the cutters/20's.

This could work with some older hookers but isn't the reason he's being dumped because he can't/won't give up the limelight? Mentoring, being unselfish with the minutes played and with the style of play one brings seems to be Farah's issue - I'd love it if he COULD do these things but I'm not sure that he would.

Farah is overpriced and I would rather give Coster or Robson a go as they are two guys that can pass and tackle. We should stop buying Reserve Grade rejects and give the youngsters a chance as we are wasting our salary cap on has beens or never was's such as Groat, Lafai, ,Marketo, Mc Crone, Nielsen and Quinlan. Let's get Johnny Raper to do the recruiting as he would have an eye for talent.

Grouch, you're forgetting Ray Thompson. That reserve grader is also on Doust's brylcreme slicked list.

Suddenly I'm praying we sign Ray Thompson as a hooker.... as sad as it may seem, he appears to be the cheapest mistake Doust could make. Also due to his current reserve grader status it may only take Mary 10-12 rounds to drop him.

Dragons should develop Sam Coster, Illawarra junior Purcell from the SG Ball team and surely there is someone in Head's 20s who is going ok at 9. The 20s are outright second at this point.

Yep, that's Reece Robson who's been mentioned previously. He was named in Australian Schoolboys squad & is only 18.
