Owen on a record
HE MADE his debut for Saracens on Sunday October 5, 2008 and was back at school the next morning. He kicked his first Premiership points two years later and now, according to my records, Owen Farrell has just accumulated his 2,500th, a number reached by barely 20 other goalkickers in the professional era.
Who’s to say that he won’t emulate Jonny Wilkinson in topping 5,000? At 26 Farrell has time on his side.
