Wests Tigers captain Robbie Farah reflects on his NRL career so far and speaks about his goals for the year ahead in the next instalment of our 2015 Player Profiles.
Entering his 13th season with Wests Tigers, Farah said that the abundance of young talent currently present at the Club was revitalising himself and the senior players to continue to put in and perform to their best, and not lose sight of their main goals for the year ahead.
"My goal at the start of the year always is to win the competition," said Farah.
If we’re not here to win the competition, we shouldn’t be here.
"Everyone at the start of the year has their goal set on that, but for us it’s about taking the steps we need to take to go in that direction. We’re really working hard; there’s a really good vibe around the Club with the new staff coming in. The players are really enjoying their training and coming in here and working hard towards having a good season."
Despite having one of the more inexperienced squads on paper in the NRL, Farah believes that the talent and culture that's continuing to be created uner new Head Coach Jason Taylor will not only surprise people in the immediate future, but in the long-term as well.
"The goal here is just to keep at it," he said. "We’re building a strong culture here and hopefully that’ll be something that continues long after myself and the senior players here are gone.
"I know I'll be handing off the baton to the younger kids, and when I do, I know that this Club will not only be successful in the next couple of years but in many, many years to come."
