Michael Maguire responds to transfer talk linking Robbie Farah away from Rabbitohs

ROBBIE Farah will be at South Sydney next year, with coach Michael Maguire rejecting claims the NRL club may offload the veteran hooker.

Maguire said Farah will see out his two-year contract, signed at the end of last year after his departure from the Wests Tigers.

“No, Robbie has a contract here next year,” Maguire told reporters when asked if Farah was being shopped around.

Former NSW hooker Farah has started 12 of his 23 games this season on the bench behind Damien Cook, including the last six matches.

Maguire said the 33-year-old was helping Cook fast-track his improvement.
