Robbie Farah's one-on-one interview Gus Gould on the NRL Footy Show Video: YouTube
On the Footy Show last night Gus went to Robbie's house and sat down for two hours to talk about the soap opera that's been happening around the Wests Tigers.
We've decided to really cut to the chase, picking out all the important bits around the rumours, feuds and innuendo, including:
- The power Farah has at the club
- The influence he had on getting rid of Tim Sheens and Benji Marshall
- The lack of support he's been getting from Grant Mayer and the board. Listen to the full audio below.

Phil Gould says his eyes were opened up with his one-on-one interview with Robbie Farah.
On Thursday, Gus told Sydney's Triple M's Grill Team it's going to ruffle a few feathers.
"Eventually someone is going to have to take charge there and get this fixed up," said Gould.
"Of course there's the matter surrounding the coach which they've now delayed until the end of the season. I think the speculation and conjecture around the coach has obviously been rattling around the club for sometime now. It has been a distraction." Listen to the full audio below.
The Gould / Farah interview will air on the Channel Nine NRL Footy Show on Thursday night at 8.30pm.

Triple M NRL's The Mole says Wests Tigers captain Robbie Farah will blow the whistle when he fronts up on Thursday's Footy Show.
Farah has not been pleased with his treatment since the story broke of this perceived lack of support for coach Mick Potter and will finally vent.
"Robbie Farah is going to be on the Footy Show tomorrow night apparently making some rather explosive revelations about the situation," Mole said on Sydney's Triple M Rush Hour

The Mole did not open up about who would be called out but he said it's pretty obvious who's in the firing line.
"It is common knowledge he and the CEO Grant Mayer don't get on, he is basically blaming Mayer for the problems at the club.
"A few players have broken ranks and said they are behind the coach but I can tell you there are still a few that believe he is not the long-term answer for the Tigers."
The board has been questioned for their lack of leadership but The Mole says it is hard to judge a group of men who have no history of making decisions together.
"It's hard for these blokes to come in and make the decision on whether Mick Potter stays on as coach."
