Robbie Farah has been confirmed as Wests Tigers' starting hooker for 2016.

Farah dropped for Dragons clash

The Wests Tigers have announced that Robbie Farah will not play for the club's first-grade team on Sunday against the St George-Illawarra Dragons.

Coach Jason Taylor informed Farah on Wednesday that he will not be in the NRL team to face the Dragons this Sunday.

 


"This was not an easy decision to make, but I have selected the 17 players that I believe will give the club the best chance of victory against the Dragons," Taylor said.

"Robbie is understandably disappointed, but I have spoken at length with him that he will be given every opportunity to regain his position in the NRL team."

Farah will play for the club's Intrust Super Premiership team on Saturday against Newtown Jets at Leichhardt Oval.
