Wests Tigers star Robbie Farah prepares for 300th NRL game: Photos

It's fair to say that Robbie Farah has had one hell of a NRL career.

From guiding the Wests Tigers to premiership glory to a controversial club walkout, Farah has grabbed plenty of attention since making his debut in 2003.

The Tigers' veteran will run out for his 300th NRL game against the Newcastle Knights on Friday night at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Farah's career highlights include playing a key role in the Tigers winning the 2005 premiership and playing 16 State of Origin games for NSW.

He has also represented Lebanon in seven Test matches and Australia in eight Tests.

The experienced hooker, 35, told the Wests Tigers website that reaching 300 games was a "nice milestone", but more important for the "people around me".

"It's for the people who played a big part in my career and have been there through the ups and downs, especially the tough times," Farah said.

"They will all be there this week and it'll be a proud moment for them.

"Once I have the chance to look back on my career somewhere down the track, I think it'll be a pretty proud moment. But I just really want to win this week."

Fittingly, Farah plays his 300th game just two weeks after Benji Marshall reached the milestone.

Farah has played the majority of his career alongside the star five-eighth since they made their debuts in 2003.

They were team mates for a decade before Marshall departed the club after the 2013 season.

Farah stayed at Wests until 2016 before he controversially left to play at the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Farah and Marshall were then reunited when they both came back to the Tigers in 2018.

The veterans re-signed together last August to stay with the Tigers in 2019.

Farah said at the time that he wanted to "leave a legacy once I'm gone".

"I want to leave the club in a better place once Benji and I are gone, and I'm really looking forward to playing that role," he said.
