Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah says he's pulled up well from his first game back from injury and is looking forward to Saturday's clash against the Cronulla Sharks.

Having originally been named in the starting side to face the Eels, Farah dropped back to the interchange bench to help manage his workload, and said that the move helped him pull up well and get in best possible shape for his second game in five days against the Sharks.

"Yeah, I pulled up quite good," he said. "Obviously a bit sore playing the first game of the year but the knee was fine and I'm looking forward to this week.

"The plan for last week was to come off the bench and keep me out of the opening 20 minutes, which is how we prepared all week. 

"The weekend wasn't the right result but I thought there were a lot of positives to take out of the game. I thought defensively it was the strongest we've been in a long time.

"There's a few things to work on in attack, and a big thing for us [this week] is completions. When we hold the ball, the points will come. We've been putting ourselves under pressure lately with so much dropped ball, so that's going to be the key for us this week."

After back-to-back losses against the Gold Coast Titans and on Easter Monday against the Eels, Farah said Saturday's game against the Sharks was going to be a tough challenge.

"We've had some great battles in recent times against the Sharks," he said.

"It's always tough against them, and looking forward to another one this Saturday.

"Hopefully there's a big crowd out here to support us.

"We haven't played them at Campbelltown in a while... so looking forward to seeing a big crowd out here to make it very difficult for them."
