The ‘King of Cauliflower’, former Dog, Saint and Roo Farren Ray, is the latest big-name guest to venture down Barkly Street this season. 

As chaos reigns with the re-emergence of the coronavirus pandemic in Victoria, Ray joins Bob and Bont for an entertaining Zoom chat about his 209-game career, and where life has taken him since.

Ray remembers his extraordinary first day as an AFL player after a post-draft trip to ‘Schoolies’, the origins of the name Farren, his journey from the Bulldogs to the Saints and finally the Kangaroos, and creating his own business, Curiously Cauli.

Bob and Bont also catch up about the current state of affairs in the AFL, discussing the Bont’s aerial ability, the win over the Swans, Tim English’s hot form, covering the loss of Aaron Naughton and Sam Lloyd, and the uncertain immediate future of the AFL competition.
