NRL Preview: Win first then milestone celebration

Wests Tigers Captain Robbie Farah wants two competition points and then he will think about his 200th game for the Club.


Farah will become only the second player in the Clubs history to reach the double century mark when he leads Wests Tigers out against Manly Sea Eagles at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on Monday night.


Second-rower Liam Fulton will play his 150th game for the Club while the match also marks the last home game at Campbelltown for the season and for departing players Benji Marshall and Blake Ayshford.


For Farah though, all that is secondary.


Tomorrow night is not about me or Liam, it is about winning and getting those two competition points. A loss will end our season, Farah said bluntly.


Emotions only last for 5-10 minutes in a game and then that goes out the window. We cant worry about this being the last game at Campbelltown for Benji and Blake. It was the same case at Leichhardt Oval last week and we didnt win. We are all just focused on playing well and getting a win.


Manly have really hit some form in the last three weeks and have scored plenty of points. (Full-back) Brett Stewart is starting to get back to his best form.


We know it is going to be a tough game for us and we are going to have to be at our best to beat them.


Like every team, Manly have a few weaknesses and it is up to us to exploit them. They are a top four team and they are there for a reason. They have got players playing well right across the park and their halves are going great.


Farah said his forwards also had to keep an eye on second-rower Anthony Watmough who has always proven a handful for Wests Tigers in the past.


Anthony is just always at you. He is a really strong competitor and is really fit so he will keep going for the 80 minutes, Farah said.


He comes into his best when you have got tired guys around the middle of the park.


The match also marks the first time Manly have played a first grade premiership match at Campbelltown in 15 year.


I dont think there will be too many Manly fans coming from Brookvale. They dont even go to Allianz Stadium yet alone Campbelltown, Farah quipped.


The more Wests Tigers supporters we can get here the better it will be for us. We really want our fans to make it as difficult as possible for Manly. Our fans can play a big role in helping us to victory tomorrow night.
