A dominant performance from Robbie Farah has left the Wests Tigers management red-faced as he lifted them to a 50-16 win over the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday.
Wests Tigers 50 def New Zealand Warriors 16
The Wests Tigers will be hoping to take the attention away from Robbie Farah’s controversial departure with a victory over the depleted New Zealand Warriors at Campbelltown Stadium. Join The Roar from 1.50pm (AEST) for live scores and coverage.
The announcement of Farah’s departure has firmly signalled the Tigers intent to focus on youth as they look to rebuild in 2016.
On Sunday they face a Warriors side on a six-match losing streak who are missing the likes of Shaun Johnson, Manu Vatuvei, Jacob Lillyman, Chad Townsend and Ben Matulino.
After being on the receiving end of a 34-point hammering by the Cowboys, the Warriors have brought in Matt Allwood to replace Ken Maumalo on the wing.
Sebastine Ikahihifo comes in at prop after Jacob Lilyman’s season ended with a fractured cheekbone last weekend.
The Tigers 17 is unchanged despite a 40-18 defeat to Cronulla.
The Warriors got off to a hot start last week with 16-points in just 13 minutes. However basic errors cost the Warriors as they finished with 11 errors and 10 penalties conceded.
This result may primarily depend on how Farah has been impacted by the news of his release. The competitive spirit needed to win of himself and his close mates at the club may not be at their usual heights this weekend.
The Warriors named their 20th anniversary team this week and it featured five players currently in their team. However with their injury crisis, Mannering is the only one taking part today.
Tigers by 14.
