The word Warrior just about sums this man up. A superb athlete and one of the best forwards the club has ever produced.

Making his debut at the age of just 16 even then everyone around the club knew he was a special player.

A regular in the Super League dream team Faz also won the Man of Steel award twice and the Golden Boot in his final year at the club. He also holds the record for the most points in a Super League season with 388 in 2001, this record was equalled in 2010 by Pat Richards.

Famous for his team talks behind the sticks after conceding a try Farrell always gave 100% and expected just the same from his team mates. His leadership skills saw him captain both club and country for over 8 years.

Farrell made 370 appearances for the Riversiders and 45 internationals before moving to Saracens RU, unfortunately injury blighted much of his Rugby Union career.
