Wests Tigers can't blame me: Farah

Former Wests Tigers captain Robbie Farah has taken a subtle swipe at his old club, saying he can't be blamed for the ongoing dramas that have dominated their start to the NRL season.

Farah was reluctant to comment on the recent troubles at Concord, including the sacking of ex-coach Jason Taylor, but absolved himself of any of the issues since his controversial exit.

"I've moved on. I'm here now, I'm enjoying my time," Farah told reporters on Tuesday.

"Individuals that aren't in my life anymore don't concern me and obviously the Tigers are in the past for my footy career. I just don't want to comment on what's going on there.

"Wasn't it supposed to get fixed when I left? The perception was that I was to blame but I'm gone now, so they can't blame me."

However the South Sydney veteran did reveal he had spoken to former teammate and Tigers skipper Aaron Woods, who has been heavily linked with a move.

Various reports over the past fortnight have the off-contract NSW State of Origin prop possibly landing at Canterbury, the Sydney Roosters, and even the Warriors.

Farah claimed the speculation had begun to take its toll on Woods, who led the team to a breakthrough win over North Queensland in coach Ivan Cleary's first match in charge.

""I know how tough it is and I'm still in contact with a few of the boys. I spoke to Woodsy and he's told me how tough it is," Farah said.

"He said, 'Mate, I don't know how (you) went through it for 18 months'.

"He's had a month of it and it's really been draining on him. I'm sure it's a big relief for the boys to go up there and get a win."
