Wests Tigers life member Robbie Farah is coming home.

Wests Tigers have confirmed that Farah will return to the club for the remainder of the 2018 NRL season. 

Farah, who has played 247 first-grade games for Wests Tigers, has signed a new playing contract until the end of the current season. 

Under the new agreement Farah will begin training with Wests Tigers this week and is eligible for selection for the club’s next game against the Gold Coast Titans at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday 1 July. 

Wests Tigers head coach Ivan Cleary welcomed Farah back to the club. 

“I look forward to welcoming Robbie back home to Wests Tigers this week,” Cleary said.

“Robbie brings a wealth of experience back to the club in a position where we feel we need some additional support at this stage of the season.

“All of my discussions with Robbie have been very positive, he understands the direction that the club is heading in, and how he can help contribute to that.

Wests Tigers chief executive Justin Pascoe said that Farah fills the club’s final roster position for 2018. 

“Robbie is a quality player and will bring some valuable experience to our playing group,” he said.

“It’s important to note that over the last two years this club has undergone significant change and we are building towards something special here. 

“We’re incredibly proud of the position that the club is in now and look forward to welcoming back a Life Member in Robbie.”

Farah’s signing along with that of Moses Mbye now fulfils Wests Tigers roster requirements for 2018.
