Daley says Robbie Farah is still his first choice

NSW coach Laurie Daley has thrown his support behind Robbie Farah and insists the new South Sydney recruit is still his first-choice hooker. However, Daley admits Blues vice-captain wasn’t at his best in this year’s series loss to Queensland, and will have to prove his worth at the Rabbitohs in 2017.

Two years after being told he could leave the Wests Tigers, Farah finally cut ties with after the joint-venture last month and Daley hopes the move will breathe new life into the veteran rake.

“It’s been extremely difficult for him over the last two years because he’s been an environment where he comes into Origin camp, you could tell he’s not his normal self,” Daley said.

“I’m hoping that he’ll go to Souths, play really well but also have that spring in his step.”
