Farah stars again as Tigers trump Warriors

Robbie Farah has turned in his second vintage performance in as many weeks to lead the Wests Tigers to the top of the NRL table for the first time in club history.

Farah twice caught the Warriors napping on blindside plays, grubbered for a third, and then helped himself to his side's fourth in their emphatic 34-6 triumph.

The 35-year-old's mesmerising display on Sunday comes a week after scoring two tries and assisting on another in their round-one win over Manly.

New coach Michael Maguire is now not only undefeated over the opening two games, but the Tigers are now on top of the league on points differential.

Never in the history of the joint venture have the Tigers led the competition.

And with a round three match-up against winless Canterbury, the Tigers could enter a bitter face-off against former coach Ivan Cleary sitting at 3-0.

Maguire's Tigers play Penrith at Panthers Stadium in two weeks.

Maguire, who coached Farah at South Sydney, said the former NSW Origin star prepared for himself to deliver in his final year of his career.

"To his credit, he put a lot of work in the background. He understands that this is his last year," Maguire said.

"He wanted to be at his best for this season so he's put a lot of time into this pre-season and the work that he's done. He's showing that now off the back of that."

The Tigers set up the win after withstanding an early offensive onslaught, symbolised by Esan Marsters' 22nd-minute trysaving tackle on Ken Maumalo.

The home side got on the board not long after through a Marsters penalty, before Farah set up the opening try with a laser cutout for Corey Thompson.

The veteran hooker then gave his team a 14-point buffer moments before the break when he grubbered for centre Robert Jennings.

A comeback loomed when Maumalo finished off a right-side shift after halftime, however it was merely a hiccup for the 9,881 crowd in Campbelltown.

Mahe Fonua ended any thoughts of a fightback with a try in the 67th minute, before Farah completed a memorable display by burrowing over not long after.

In another positive for the Tigers, skipper Moses Mbye came through unscathed in his season debut after missing round one with a knee injury.

Compounding the defeat for the Warriors was forward Sam Lisone getting cited for a crusher tackle on Thomas Mikaele in the second half.

Warriors coach Stephen Kearney admitted some individuals may have gotten away with their emotional round-one romp over Canterbury.

"It was a big week for the footy club last week for a number of reasons," he said.

"The lesson for this footy team is that the NRL, it's every week you've just got to turn up regardless of the opponent, what round it is.

"Possibly there were some individuals tonight who are still on the cloud that they finished off with last week, it was a good lesson for them."
