I would have Farah in my team: Brett KimmorleyJune 6, 2016
Premiership-winning halfback Brett Kimmorley has come to the defence of embattled Wests Tigers rake Robbie Farah saying he would have the veteran in his side if he was selecting the team.
Farah has been linked with a move to the Leeds Rhinos and seems to still be out of favour with Wests Tigers despite recently playing in State of Origin I for New South Wales.
“There’s a public perception that he’s the wrong player for any football side he plays in now and I don’t think it’s warranted,” Kimmorley told Fox Sports News.
“I heard a lot of people make comments that his Origin game was pretty poor — I thought he was good.
“This carries baggage from what the media has written for a period of time, that Robbie’s wrong for the team, Robbie’s a bad player and selfish.
“People have got it in their head that he’s a bad footy player.
“I actually think he’s quite a good footy player. I would still have him in my side but as far as we know he’s probably departing to finish in England, that’s the other sad news.”
