HORNETS PATRONS

 
 Terry Lamb is one of the all-time legends and his record in the game speaks for itself playing for Australia, NSW, Western Suburbs and Canterbury with great distinction. He played a premiership record 350 first grade games (since passed by Darren Lockyer) and is the only player to appear in every match on a Kangaroo Tour, which he achieved in 1986 and was also the tour’s leading try-scorer with 19. In 2004 he was named five-eighth and captain of the Bulldogs all-time greatest side. In 2008 he was honoured as being named in the Top 100 Players of All Time and is the only Canterbury-Bankstown Junior in that esteemed group. Terry has won many personal awards and rates winning the Players Player Award in 1984, 1986 and 1995 as his most presigious. Terry captained Canterbury to premiership success in 1995 and played in the 1984 and 1988 triumphs. Terry played all 12 years of his Junior League at the Hornets. In 1998 he was made a Life Member of the Hornets.
