Rabbitohs coach Anthony Seibold has taken a cheeky dig at Tigers veteran Robbie Farah ahead of their meeting on Saturday night.

After being released by South Sydney a month ago, Farah is set to play his 250th NRL game against his old side at ANZ Stadium.

In addition to Farah’s milestone, Rabbitohs legend John Sutton will play his 300th NRL game, the first player in the club’s history to accomplish such a feat.

Farah told reporters during the week that he will divulge Souths’ game plan to the Tigers’ camp to give them a tactical boost in the contest.

And despite Sebold saying he and Farah had good relationship, the Rabbitohs’ coach turned the tables on his ex-player.

“I’ve heard that in the media he’s been quite vocal in terms of knowing what we do and giving our game strategy to the coaching staff over there at the Tigers,” Seibold told reporters yesterday.

“Faz has been in the media quite a bit the last three weeks. I think there’s a fair bit of pressure on Robbie, he’s coming up against a group of guys he knows pretty well. We know Robbie’s game as well.”
