The end may be near for the Robbie Farah career in footy. Robbie Farah ended up emotional after Wests Tigers coach Jason Taylor’s decision to bench him. This was despite Farah leading Wests Tigers for a win against Newtown Jets for the NSW cup. The Wests Tigers won 42 to 24.

Robbie Farah’s Frustration

After coach Jason Taylor’s decision to put Farah on reserve despite his productive performance, a disappointed Robbie Farah voiced his sentiments to the media.

He explained how he has maintained his silence over all the negative reports about him so far. He, however, has fully committed to playing his best until his contract expires in 2017.

Despite winning the last 3 out of the 4 games which he participated in, Farah was consequently dropped by Taylor. Farah was notified days away from his supposed 250th game. During the meeting, Taylor nitpicked Farah’s playing style which the coach used as a basis to put Farah in the reserve position. Meanwhile, Farah did his best to maintain a positive attitude and simply promised to improve.

Coach Jason Taylor’s Decision

Despite giving Farah the boot, coach Taylor thinks it’s not the end of the line for the talented NSW hooker. He acknowledged Farah’s skills. However, his decision was made with the team in mind. He called Robbie Farah one of the creative players in the club. It was a double-edged sword for Farah as coach Taylor believes there’s a limit to the number of creative players one can unleash on the field, News AU notes. Unfortunately for Farah, coach Taylor was willing to sacrifice him for the sake of the team.

For coach Taylor, the club needs more of a team right now rather than a star.

Robbie Farah Career

While Farah is under contract for the Wests Tigers until 2017, his future remains unclear. He started his NRL career with the Wests Tigers in 2003 and slowly gained traction in 2005. He soon replaced their team captain for the main hooker position. In 2009 he was appointed as the team captain. Though due to his recent shoulder injury, Farah has missed most of the games for the Wests Tigers. Farah’s absence saw the Wests Tigers suffer from a losing streak.

However, with coach Taylor’s new team strategy, Farah’s NRL career is in jeopardy.
