FARAH MOVES TO HALF-BACK FOR MANLY CLASH

Wests Tigers Coach Tim Sheens has named his side to play Manly Sea Eagles at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday, May 7, in round 9 of the Telstra Premiership. Kick-off is 3pm.

Half-back Scott Prince has moved to five-eighth with hooker Robbie Farah moving to half-back to cover Prince. Stuart Flanagan returns to the hooking role.

The captaincy role will be shared between Prince and Farah.

Dene Halatau has been named on the interchange bench for his first game of the season following shoulder surgery.

Prop John Skandalis will play his 150th game for the Wests Tigers, a current record.

I think it is great that farrah has moved to the half back role as he carved us up last year at Leichhardt in the hooker positon.

I don't rate him as anywhere near as dangerous at half back.

Haven't heard anything but that's what it smelt like to me.

Desperate to win & not play him?????? Nah.

More likely trying to pressure NZ to use Marshall sparingly so he's fresh and uninjured and a last-minute surprise. I'd be surprised (pleasantly) if Marshall & Hodgson don't play.
