Captain Robbie Farah might have entered his 12th season in the NRL this year, but it didn't hamper his on-field performances at all as he again impressed on field with another impressive season as he led from the front for both Wests Tigers and NSW.

The skipper finished the season with 18 games to his name as he missed time due to an elbow injury earlier in the year followed by State of Origin duties, but his passion and never-say-die attitude constantly came through as he led the team in a number of categories statistically — averaging a staggering 43 tackles and 87.9 metres per game.

Farah finished 2014 with five tries and seven try-assists to his name, and has capped off another strong year with selection in the Australian train-on squad for the Four Nations.

Top Try — Round 6 vs. North Queensland Cowboys

With his side trailing on the scoreboard and only a few minutes remaining before the half-time interval, Wests Tigers needed to take some ascendency into the break, and they soon found it as a smart run from Farah found some space under the posts. That try gave the hosts a 6-4 lead heading into the half-time, and paved the way for a strong second half performance to walk away with a 16-4 win over the Cowboys.

 

Best Match — Round 6 vs. North Queensland Cowboys

In addition to crossing for the above mentioned try before half-time, the skipper also got on the attacking score-sheet with a fortuitous grubber that allowed Blake Austin to cross for a try in his Club debut. Farah also added a more than handy 40 tackles (missing none) and a staggering 152 metres from his 15 runs out of dummy half.

 

Magic Moment — Round 5 vs. Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles

Needing a big performance following a last start defeat to the New Zealand Warriors, Farah got Wests Tigers off to the perfect start against the Sea Eagles in Round 5. The captain grubbered through close to the line before diving to beat the ball into touch, before jumping up to celebrate with the 16,000-plus rain-soaked crowd at Leichhardt Oval — showing full emotion what it meant for him to score at his “local” home ground.
