Farah welcome at Dragons says Marshall

Benji Marshall would love to reunite with friend and premiership-winning teammate Robbie Farah at St George Illawarra and admits the pair have discussed the possibility.

Farah continues to be linked to a move from Wests Tigers to the Dragons due to his falling out with Tigers coach Jason Taylor.

The Dragons remain the only avenue left out of Concord for Farah, and Marshall would like to see him in the Red V.

“Absolutely I would,” Marshall said.

“He is a class player. The problem is we have a class hooker in Mitchell Rein.

“So if Mitch is at the club, I think he has a great future, he is a future Origin star, and if Robbie joins the ranks that is another extra hooker on the books.”

Marshall and Farah combined to bring the joint venture their most successful period, including the club’s only premiership in 2005.

The 30-year-old Marshall has reinvigorated his career with the Dragons over the last two seasons after a short ill-fated liaison with rugby union.

Marshall has previously said Farah would benefit from a change of scenery.

However he said Farah was guarded about where he would be in 2016.

Farah has begun pre-season training with the Tigers, but Taylor has continued to refuse to guarantee him a first grade spot next year.

Marshall said at the Dragons’ corporate golf day, played at Sydney’s The Coast Golf Club on Friday that he didn’t know where Farah’s future lay.

“He doesn’t say anything,” Marshall said.

“I asked him the other night and he said you will find out, I have played with him for 20 years but he doesn’t tell me anything,” Marshall said.

“He said ‘how good would it be to finish our careers together;’ but he will be finished way before me.”
