Hull KR Chairman Neil Hudgell, August 26th, 2014 said..

"In fact, the days of us signing any players from across the river are over. Our fans are loyal, passionate and only interested in one club. Taking players from our nearest rivals doesn't fit in with that brief."

One of the first players we signed from West Yorkshire in the 70's that started the FC revival .

A tough, skilful forward and a great leader. If he hadn't come to Hull, knocker, Charlie Stone and Sammy Lloyd wouldn't have come and the glory years of the 80s might never have happened
RIP Vince

Very sorry to hear this. Apart from being a very good player - good enough to get international selection when at Hull, his signing paved the way for the future top class signings from West Yorkshire from the iconic Knocker onwards. Before Farrar signed Hull couldn't persuade top players to join them, after many followed and a golden era followed. The importance of his signing and the knock on effects can't be underestimated. On top of that always regarded as a great character off the pitch as well.
