Farren RAY


Age: 33yr 5mth Games: 209 Born: Mar 23, 2021
Height: 187cm Weight: 84kg Position: MID

2016 Digest:   Veteran added as insurance as the club makes its premiership run. Good around the locker room and can provide another midfield body if needed. Could prove a shrewd recruit by the Roos.

2016 NAB Cup:   Gathered 16 disposals in two matches then dropped for final match against Hawks. Signs are he’s on the fringe.
