Say what you like about Tigers hooker Robbie Farah, but he sure his resilient.
Despite having been seemingly on his way out of the NRL in his previous tenure at Wests, before again being stuck in reserve grade at the Rabbitohs, Farah has once again fought his way back to relevancy, and been rewarded with a new deal.
According to SMH reporter Danny Weidler, Farah has agreed to terms on a new one-year deal with the Tigers, extending his career into a 17th season.
It was widely assumed when Farah rejoined the Tigers mid-season on a 6-month deal, that it was likely to be just one last hurrah at the club where he made his name.
Instead, Farah immediately reinvigorated the club, sparking an immediate improvement in the side’s offense, and earning himself another season in the process.
Farah has played 281 first grade games for the Tigers and Rabbitohs, 16 Origins for New South Wales, 8 Tests for Australia, and 4 for Lebanon.
