Robbie Farah is tipped to make a return to the Wests Tigers

Robbie Farah is tipped to make a return to the Wests Tigers, where his career began.

It’s alleged Farah has reached out to Tigers coach Ivan Cleary about coming back before the June 30 transfer deadline.

Word is it would be until the end of the season and it’s likely his current side, current club, South Sydney, wouldn’t stand in the veteran hooker’s way if he requested a release by the June 30 transfer deadline.

The Tigers have been unable to settle on a replacement hooker since Farah’s departure, trying Pita Godinet, Jacob Liddle, Elijah Taylor, Matt McIlwrick and Josh Reynolds during their 2018 season.

Farah was a key member of the Tigers’ 2005 premiership side, but his last few years at the club were marred by controversy, most notably when then-coach Jason Taylor dropped him to reserve grade in 2016.

This year he has suffered the same fate at the Rabbitohs, spending much of the year playing for feeder side North Sydney behind NSW Origin hooker Damien Cook.

Bulldogs fullback Moses Mbye has signed to play for the Tigers in 2019 but it’s been confirmed that he will also come across before the transfer deadline.
