With former Wests Tigers team-mates Robbie Farah and Scott Prince set to go head-to-head this week, as the Tigers take on the Titans, Farah knows that if there are any defensive issues for his club this week, that Prince will punish them.
“It’s our job not to allow him the time and space he wants because if we do, we know what he’s capable of,” Farah said.
“Scotty will try and shoulder the load and he’ll know that he needs a big game to pull his team out of what they are going through, especially against his old club.
“If we don’t follow the defensive structures that we want to do, he’s going to tear us apart.
“I know Princey’s a competitor as well and they’re on four losses at the moment. As a captain and a leader of their side he’s going to be up for a big game.”
The Titans are boosted by the return of second-rowers Ashley Harrison and Greg Bird, who come back into the side against a Wests Tigers side decimated by injuries of their own, yet they still beat the Bunnies convincingly last week.
“I think we’ve seen this year that teams who are coming off a loss are more desperate,” Farah said.
“It’s their second game now with Nathan Friend back and Princey was coming off an injury last week as well and they’ll both be better for the run.
“And obviously you’ve got Greg Bird and Harrison back in the side.”
With Farah expecting the Titans to come into the game raring to go and to dominate from the start, he knows that his side are in good nick also, given their comprehensive win last week.
“We were happy with our defence last week, to hold Souths to six points was a great job, going into the game last week they were the best attacking team in the comp in terms of tries scored and I thought it was a great effort,” he added.
