Wests Tigers have announced the signings of veteran duo Robbie Farah and Benji Marshall, on one-year extensions.

The pair are both Life Members of the Tigers, with Farah currently holding the games record at the Tigers with 255 appearances.

Both Farah and Marshall were excited to finish their careers in Tigers colours, with the pair expressing their gratitude to the club’s website.

“It’s exciting to finally get it done,” Farah told

“I wanted to take my time with the decision and I’m glad it’s done now.

“I want to embrace everything and take it all in now knowing it’s going to be my last year, and hopefully leave a legacy once I’m gone. I want to leave the club in a better place once Benji and I are gone, and I’m really looking forward to playing that role.”

Marshall echoed Farah’s sentiments, and already can’t wait to get started next season.

“It was always my intention coming back here to finish my career here,” Marshall added.

“I think it’s pretty special to start and finish my career at the same place, and to be able to do it with Robbie is something I never could have imagined happening.

“You can’t get that opportunity to play again if you decide to retire and I didn’t want to have any regrets. I still feel like I have plenty to offer, so I’m just hoping that with a big pre-season and an off-season I can stay injury-free and contribute again next year.”
