The South Sydney Rabbitohs have signed Robbie Farah for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
Farah has played 247 NRL games to date for the Wests Tigers since making his first grade debut against the Sea Eagles in 2003.
Farah has also played a host of representative football for his state and country over his 14 year career and is the incumbent New South Wales State of Origin hooker.
Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire is pleased to be adding Farah to his squad for the 2017 season.
“Robbie has accomplished many things in the game and we look forward to him joining our squad and pushing for a spot in our top 17 each week,” Coach Maguire said.
“Competition for spots is a driving factor for success at any Club and by adding a player of Robbie’s ability we will be increasing that competition within our squad.
“Within our organisation we believe Robbie will strengthen our Club and we look forward to working with him when he joins us for pre-season training.”
The Rabbitohs have also agreed to a request from Cameron McInnes to release him from the final year of his playing contract.
