Recently plenty have called Farah soft & from what I have seen its close to the mark. Imo his impact from dummy half has deteriated with slower play the balls in recent seasons & his style is not SOO. Ennis the grub, pest , provoker & sledger is the better option of whats available to NSW. If Ballin was a Blue I rate him clearly above both these guys with quality service at the advantage line, great kick chase & defensively the best 9 in the NRL with toughness to boot. Sadly for Nsw Cam Smith is at the top with daylight 2nd imo & MB 3rd. Have shared an opinion on here before that we may see by 2013 with Buhrer at dummy half. Really think, even though its a specialist position this Kid would exploit any loose ruck defence & only need some game time to work on distribution from this key area. Put it this way, I'd take him over this Hinchcliffe ppl are talking up at hooker today for club OR State. Anyways back to the rant I feel if NSW are to beat Qld, it will need to be gritty not pretty so No Farah for mine. Thoughts??
