Rugby League: LIFE IN THE FAZ LANE; GILLETTE TRI-NATIONS: BRITAIN V AUSTRALIA, 6.15PM Skipper Farrell Hunts Golden Boot and Tri-Nations Double


Byline: David BURKE

SEAN LONG reckons Great Britain skipper Andy Farrell should be given the boot - the Golden Boot, that is.

Long is urging his Lions team-mate to land the prize for the world's best player as Britain prepares for tonight's Gillette Tri-Nations clash with the Aussies at Wigan (6.15pm).

Farrell, the veteran in the British squad at just 29, has already been crowned Man of Steel twice and lifted the Super League players' Player Of The Year award this season.

"It's been a fantastic year on a personal level but there can be no greater honour than skippering Britain to success against the Aussies and Kiwis and we believe we have a great chance.

"But first we have to qualify for the final and we aim to do that tonight.""

A panel of journalists vote for the world's best player and Farrell already has my nomination with the Golden Boot winner being named on Monday week - five days before the Tri-Nations final.

The only British player to win the Golden Boot in 20 years was Ellery Hanley in 1989 with Aussie skipper Lockyer the current holder.

Farrell had knee surgery after last year's 3-0 Ashes whitewash before becoming Wigan's talisman as emergency prop.

He smashed his nose against Leeds but returned with a heavily-bandaged face to inspire his side to victory. And Farrell showed his courage again in his 31st Test appearance - and a record-extending 26th as captain - in Saturday's 22-12 win over New Zealand. …
