Robert Farrah had to play with the handicap of Tim Sheens, Benji Marshall and John Morris for years. It's a wonder he's not in the looney bin.

Lol, poor little Wobby. He seems to have come down with a bad case of "hey everybody, look at meeeee!!"

Somehow I doubt Cam Smith lays awake at night worrying about who other people think is the better hooker. His achievements speak for themselves.

Wobbys opinion of himself is outweighed only by his insecurities.

Imagine if Farah was a QLDer who played his entire club career with Slater & Cronk, and his entire rep career with those two and Thurston, Inglis and Lockyer.

And then imagine that Smith was a Blue who played his entire NRL career under the Sheenius and rep career beside Soward, Wallace and Pearce.

Given this, does anyone seriously doubt that under this scenario we'd almost unanimously consider Farah the better hooker? Of course we would.

Children please. On footballing abilities, if you ignore the fact Smith is a cap cheat, wrestling merkin, it's Cameron Smith. Anyone honestly arguing otherwise is taking the piss.

Smith is just as important to the Storm as Farah is to the Tigers so there goes your argument.

Shhhhh. Don't let sense get in the way of the Cameron Smith circle jerk. It's easy to say someone is the best when they also happen to play with arguably the best fullback of all time and a top 2 halfback and up until last year, one of the better 5/8 in the comp.

Lets not even get into what he gets to play with for QLD. It also doesn't hurt that he has Tallis, Wally Lewis and Ben Ikin having an orgasm every time he throws a pass.

Now let's get to the awards that he has been handed. He was awarded MOTM in Game 2 (2013) where he registered 0 Tries, LB, Try Assists, LB assist and made just over 40 tackles while Thurston terrorised the Blues and put out 1 LB, 1 LBA, 1 TA and had a hand in the vast majority of tries scored by QLD. He was also outplayed by Farah in Game 1 but yet it was decided that Smith deserved the Wally Lewis Medal for the series.

Farah hasn't had the privilege of playing with the amazing talent that is around Smith and has had to carry some of the laziest players to grace this game and play under one of the dumbest coaches in the game today (e.g. two backs, two forwards bench and selecting Fitzhenry).

Not to mention the awards Farah has been robbed of. The Dally M Award in 2010 despite playing excellent and consistent footy that led to a top 3 finish for the Tigers but the media thought 9-10 weeks of good form from an alcoholic dickhead deserved it more. Being robbed of MOTM in Origin 2, 2012 where he broke the Origin record for tackles made but somehow, Bird got it despite two early errors that put NSW under pressure. He was also robbed of Hooker of the Year in 2009 when that joke Michael Ennis, had the media fondling his nutsack every time he made a tackle.

Basically, he is a skilled player, but no where near as skilled and influential as people make him out to be. If he was, he wouldn't have a shit win-loss record without Cronk or Slater (just look at this year).

It doesn't help that he is a grubby cheat.

End rant.

wobbie has played along side Slater,Cronk,thurston,lockyer and inglis and he still hasn`t shone.


Yeah because playing 10-15 minutes a game a couple of times a year is a good way to compare. :sarcasm:

Put your helmet back on and go support your cheating team.

Farah wouldn't even be in the top 50 hookers to have played the game. He couldn't even crack origin over ennis. Average player with an average skill set.
