Wests Tigers wish to make a statement on behalf of Club Captain Robbie Farah in response to media reports regarding his relationship with Head Coach Tim Sheens.

Reports suggested that Farah became irritated when overlooked for Test selection during the recent Four Nations tournament.

"Regrettably the reports create a totally false impression of things. I had prepared all week to play in the Test match against England and was very excited by the prospect of playing in a big Test match at Wembley Stadium. When plans changed late in the week and Tim told me that I would not be taking my place in the side, I was understandably disappointed as any player would be," Farah said.

"That said, I totally accepted Tim's decision. To now suggest that I would be seeking to leave the Club that I love is just ridiculous and unfounded.

"Tim has been my coach since I came into first grade in 2003 and whilst we agree to disagree on things from time to time, our working relationship has never been adversely affected.

"I am totally committed to my team-mates who I am extremely tight with. I can assure all Wests Tigers fans that we will all be working hard to ensure a successful season in 2012 and beyond."
