Robbie Farah shows Wests Tigers what they will miss in victory over Warriors

Guardian Sport - 5 hours 46 sec ago
  • Wests Tigers 50-16 New Zealand Warriors
  • Farah stars in probably his last Tigers appearance at Campbelltown

Robbie Farah left Wests Tigers management red-faced after leading his side to a 50-16 NRL win over the Warriors at Campbelltown Stadium. After being told he was unwanted by the club next year, Farah starred with a try and set up another two on Sunday as the Tigers lifted themselves off the bottom of the ladder.

“Robbie” chants sprang up regularly, including when he was replaced midway through the second half, as the 6,711 fans in attendance showed their appreciation. They also let Tigers coach Jason Taylor know their feelings towards him, roundly booing him as he came from the field following the warm up.

Defeat to Adelaide puts West Coast Eagles' home final hopes in danger

Guardian Sport - 5 hours 11 min ago
  • Adelaide Crows defeated West Coast Eagles 19.12 (126) to 10.9 (69)

Imposing Adelaide forward Josh Jenkins kicked six goals in a 57-point belting of West Coast which puts the Eagles’ top-two AFL hopes in peril. The Crows, eyeing a possible home elimination final, produced two bursts of precision football in a 19.12 (126) to 10.9 (69) win on Sunday at Adelaide Oval.

West Coast must defeat St Kilda next weekend or likely slip to third – and be punted on the road in the opening week of the finals, possibly against Hawthorn.
