Bury­ing hatchet

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

WITH one sim­ple hand­shake, Rob­bie Farah and Michael En­nis poured cold wa­ter on more than a decade of com­pet­i­tive fire with one aim: NSW win­ning next week’s State of Ori­gin de­cider.

Farah, rac­ing the clock to over­come a bro­ken hand, wel­comed En­nis into the NSW Ori­gin fold yesterday by of­fer­ing up his en­tire play­book, should his mir­a­cle bid to pull on the Blues jersey fail to even­tu­ate.

Long re­garded as sworn en­e­mies and archri­vals, Farah shook hands with En­nis in front of the en­tire NSW squad in­side the Blues team room, the mo­ment the in- form Cronulla Sharks hooker ar­rived just af­ter 8am in Coffs Har­bour yesterday.

With Farah watch­ing from the side­line, En­nis took part in his first NSW train­ing ses­sion since 2011, aware that it could be another 48 hours be­fore the Wests Tigers cap­tain learns if his dream to play on Wed­nes­day night is over.
