Robbie Farah may have played his last game for the Wests Tigers after suffering a knee injury in his side’s loss to the Bulldogs on Saturday night.

The 35-year old tried to play through the injury but was shut down midway through the first half.

And while the early prognosis was a potential medial ligament or meniscus injury, Tigers coach Michael Maguire had faith that we had not yet seen the end of Farah.

“We’ll wait for a scan, not 100 per cent sure,” Maguire told NRL Media post-match.

“[They] seem to think it might just be a medial on the inside of the knee there. Fingers crossed we get a bit of decent news on that.

“I’m sure Robbie will be back. He won’t let that finish him. He will get his scans. He was pretty positive in there. He stayed out there but it just got the point where he couldn’t keep running.”

Farah announced last week that he would retire at the end of the 2019 season.

  1. Yes, probably no major injury but after the 300 games story of the decade , followed by the “I’m Retiring” ticketek parade through Norton St, we now have king narcissist Wobbie thinking we are all in panic mode with the fear we may never see him grace us with vision of him on the footy field ever again.
    Wobby please, piss off.

  2. Typical comment from a Souths fanatic.
    Souths chased him, signed him, stuck him in reserves and sat him on their exit lounge, then they do what they always do and spat him out.
    Souths are a grub club.
    But he showed all league followers what he is made of and came back to where he proved how valuable a player he is. The premiership winning Maguire knows his value.
