Oh ruddy nora not the Farrar myth again.....I'd have him in my disappointment 17. He wasn't good for us, just happened to folllow on from some poor hookers.


Farrar was OK but his reputation probably soured with the fans because of the excessive farewell we gave him, chairing him off the field for an ovation in the last game of 2000 when Forster and Hilton who were also released didn't get anything. It summed up the idea that there was an Aussie clique at the top of the club.

I think Farrar played three seasons, 98-00, and in that first season when we were at the worst point we ever were in the SL era, Farrar had a good year and so stood out. After that he was just OK, but he was playing through injuries and so had the warhorse appeal.

Completely agree SC.
I could never understand the love him with Farah. He was OK. OK about sums him up.

And yet, players at that point would say he was heavily responsible for toa being too try scorer that season

Also I can't remember how big Gareth Carvell's reputation was before he joined, but his performances were up there with Morley and Hill.


Matt King*

*If we ignore the first 16 months.

Not sure Carvell had a big reputation.

Charnley delivered from the get go. No time needed to 'gel' even coming from the wrong sport. Class players can do that.

Bob Jackson. Maybe didn't come with a big rep but certainly left with one IMO.

No question. Excelled. I think only Hicks has eclipsed him.
