Rob was one of the Old Boys longest serving players, and it showed. Those years of post match beers and chips up the Happy Man saw the once lean fit mean machine (no sniggering) sporting the sort of beer gut Homer Simpson would be proud. However he retained his cultured right foot which saw him whip in many a corner or free kick normally associated with David Beckham (although Becks usually got them on target) and in emergency situations he kindly filled (literally) the position of goalkeeper, as results took a turn for the better.
In other areas too, Rob performed well, as his two young children were often to be seen cheering Daddy on from the sidelines. In recent years, Rob has been one of the stand out performers in the annual Old Boys Golf Day, despite some doubts as the legality of his driver.
