Farah confident in Tigers flair

Robbie Farah says Wests Tigers‘ new halfback pairing of Benji Mashall and Tim Moltzen is a ‘potent combination’.

Captain Farah has yet to play in any trial matches after undergoing surgery on his groin at the end of the Four Nations, but will lead his side against the Roosters in their final trial match tomorrow.

The clash will be a perfect opportunity for the Tigers to hone their combinations ahead of their NRL opener against Cronulla at Leichhardt Oval on March 4.

Farah is confident in Marshall and Moltzen however, having watched the pair perform well in the Tigers’ hitout against Parramatta last weekend.

“Tim understands our game well,’’  said Farah.

“He and Benji are probably the two best talkers in the team and that’s what you need in your halves to boss the boys around the park and I thought they did that well last week.’’

“They understand each other’s games and hopefully with myself slotting in, it does make it a pretty potent combination.”

Farah is hoping the Tigers can improve on their start to the season, having stumbled to four losses in the NRL‘s first seven rounds last year.

“Our short term goal is to start the season well,” added Farah.

“Last year we didn’t start as well as we would have liked and we chased our tail in the end. Luckily enough for us, we came home strong.

“This year our goal is to start well and put ourselves into a good position coming into the back end of the year.”
