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.”


  1. No pressure on Farah but heaps of pressure on the competition leaders Souths RabbitπŸ‘ Tigers by 30

    • 🀣 Pressure is on Souths, Everyone wants to lift their game and really test themselves out now against the leaders of the comp. Are they up for the weekly bashings? I think they may do ok but time the semis come around they will be battered and bruised.

  2. Looks like the old Wests Tigers coach Taylor is a bit of a fool after how Farah with his offsider Marshall have turn the Tigers back into giant killers. Why Taylor could not get along with Farah is one of the mysteries of life. Taylor has certainly got egg on his face now with Robbie finally playing his 250th with a memorable victory over the over achieving rabbit side.🎈🎈🎈🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🎈🎈🎈
