Farrar RetiresDanny Farrar has announced that he will be retiring from the game after Sunday's match against Salford at Wilderspool. Farrar joined the Wolves from Penrith Panthers for Super League III. He played for the Panthers in the World Club Championship against Warrington in 1997, which is where he impressed many with his workload and his ability to tackle well above his own body weight. Since joining the club, Danny has made 83 appearances, scoring 16 tries in his 3 seasons.His team mate Mark Forster remembers the clashes against the Panthers and Danny in the World Club Championship and was impressed. "You could tell he was a player that led from the front, a no nonsense hooker, big hitter, 40 - 50 plays a game, someone who puts his body on the line," he said.Director of Football, Darryl Van De Velde added: "Danny has been a fantastic servant to the club.""Over the last three years, he has been one of your best players. He has surpassed himself by playing injured, playing through the pain barrier many a time, only missing a handful of games.""This is a clear illustration of Danny's commitment to his team mates and the club." A phenomenal work rate and especially impressive tackling ability earned Danny much respect throughout the world of Rugby League. His passionate displays for the wire will be sorely missed.
