Hooker of 15 Years: Robbie Farah

Robbie Farah has been named at hooker in Wests Tigers’ Team of 15 Years.

Since making his debut in 2003 against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, Farah has been a regular in Wests Tigers’ team for over a decade now.

The hooker was part of the Club’s 2005 premiership-winning team — scoring eight tries in his 27 appearances that year — and quickly became one of the most potent players in the competition after that successful season.

Farah finished second in Dally M Player of the Year in both 2007 and 2010 — winning Dally M Hooker of the Year on both occasions.

In 2009, Farah took over as Club captain from Brett Hodgson, and was named to make his international debut for Australia later that year against New Zealand.

He remains the longest-serving captain of the Club (currently in his sixth year as captain) and also has the most first-grade appearances for the Club to his name as well.

Farah became a Life Member of the Club in 2013 alongside Benji Marshall, when he broke Chris Heighington’s record for the most games for Wests Tigers.

In total, Farah has played 213 games for Wests Tigers, scoring 56 tries.
