Owen on a record

The Rugby Paper - - News | Commonwealth Games -

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.
