The NRL club most likely to sign Robbie Farah

© Provided by Sportal com au Robbie Farah is most likely to join the St George Illawarra Dragons for the 2017 NRL season, according to Fox Sports'  James Hooper.

The 32-year-old hooker has been frozen out at the Wests Tigers by coach Jason Taylor and is almost certain to leave the club he started his career at in 2003.

Dragons hooker Mitch Rein's contract expires at the end of the season while a drunken brawl has put question marks on the future of backup Siliva Havili.

"I think he’s going to most likely end up at St George Illawarra," Hooper told NRL Tonight.

"As it stands they’re the only club in the NRL that have expressed any sort of interest in having Robbie next year.

"The Wests Tigers will need to chip in a lot of money to make this happen - perhaps as much as $800,000 of Robbie’s $950,000 contract - the Dragons would then make up the rest and there is some pressure at this point for Robbie to also to be given a deal for 2018."

Farah is unlikely to play football at all this weekend with the Wests Tigers' NSW Cup team scheduled to have a bye.
