Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire says Robbie Farah will be at South Sydney in 2018. However, with nobody exactly lining up to take him, Maguire likely doesn’t have a choice.
“No, Robbie has a contract here next year,” Maguire told Fox Sports, in response to speculation that Farah was being shopped around.
“A lot of people probably have Robbie wrong. He’s been fantastic for us.”
Call us cynical, but what else would Maguire say? If the Rabbitohs were shopping Farah around and – as has been reported – nobody is interested; then they’re now stuck with him. At this point, Maguire can either say “Robbie’s been fantastic”, or “we can’t get rid of him”.
Maguire has chosen the former. We think that’s a good choice.
