A LOT of the NSW Blues success tonight will come down to whether or not hooker, Robbie Farah, has a good game.

Farah can provide the spark and the momentum with his kicking game out of dummy half that can see the Blues over the line.

Believe it or not but, the Blues hooker resides in the Hastings, or at least a version of the West Tigers skipper.

Harry Harris, also known as Mark Harris has shown his support to Farah and the Blues by posting a Facebook video of him dressed up as the tough as nails playmaker.

And he strikes a remarkable resemblance, so much so that Harris said he has been on the end of some kickbacks from his appearance.

"I don't go out and say I am or act like I'm Robbie," he said.

"But I've been out before and people have asked me for photos, they've let me jump queue and I've even been granted VIP access in some places.

"I try to play it down, but the more I play it down the more they think I'm Robbie.

"One of the best is when I was given a complimentary bottle of champagne when I was out in Melbourne one night."

Harris and his mates often post funny video's on his Froth On Facebook page and he said there would be more to come.

"We just do it as a bit of fun," he said.

"You could say my mates and I live a pretty cool life travelling around a fair bit so we like to make videos and show people what's happening.

"There's plenty of times when I will just stop and interview some stranger.

"But I can probably see Farah making another appearance on a video for game two and three."

In Harris's video he talks about the life of Origin camp, Mitchell Pearce's unfortunate incident, the alcohol ban and skipper Paul Gallen gets a special mention.
