Ice Hockey legend Wayne Gretzky once said "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take".

Who knew former NRL player Robbie Farrah was an Edmonton Oilers fan...

He's clearly a tennis fan, giving Eugenie Bouchard a shout-out on Twitter.

The Wests Tigers icon and former NSW hooker, who retired at the end of last season, is in Miami for Monday's Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs and tagged the world No. 212 in a couple of tweets as he threw out the idea of grabbing a drink with the 25-year-old, who resides in the Florida city when not on tour.

Responding to a couple of social media users who questioned the wisdom of such tweets, Farah said he was merely tapping away on his keyboard for "s***s and giggles".

"Sorry for having a laugh," he wrote in another tweet.
