Biography

Wellington winger first came to prominence when he played in Western Division's win over Penrith in the final of the 1974 Amco Cup competition. Fahey was chosen for Country in 1975 but withdrew from the NSW side because of family reasons. Fast, and with the strength of a forward, he made his debut for Australia in a World Series match against NZ later that year but injured his hip after 13 minutes and had to be replaced. (Before the match had ended, Fahey showered, left the SCG and caught a plane home because he had to go to work). Signing with Souths in 1976 he again represented NSW and, the following year, played for Australia in the World Cup competition. Fahey made his Test debut in the First Test against NZ in 1978 but declined to tour with the Kangaroos, again citing family reasons. He was selected as a replacement for Larry Corowa in the Third Test against Great Britain in 1979 and, two years later, received another belated call-up when Kerry Boustead withdrew from the Second Test against France. Fahey spent seasons with Easts in 1981-82 and was a member of NSW's State of Origin sides during this time. He was also the season's leading try-scorer in 1982, scoring 15 tries. Fahey damaged a vertebra in his neck in 1980 and although he gave good service to battlers Canberra, the latter part of his career was hampered by recurring back pain. Fahey represented Country Origin in 1984 and, despite missing the entire 1985 season, overcame his injuries to play two further seasons with the Raiders.
