The future of Herbie Farnworth has been doing the rounds more than ever in recent weeks and months.
The current Brisbane Broncos star has been in superb form for the Queensland side, and it’s no secret that a number of clubs are circling.
News Corp has revealed that two Sydney clubs and Canberra are in the running, but that Farnworth is keen on staying in Queensland which leaves the Dolphins in the driving seat – with Farnworth holding secret talks with head coach Wayne Bennett.
Bennett has spoken of his admiration of the England international, but conceded that he isn’t the only one chasing him.
“We’re certainly interested in Herbie, but I don’t know if we can get him,” Bennett said.
“He is talking to a number of clubs, but hopefully he can see a future with us.”
But, Farnworth himself has broken his silence about his future.
“I am happy with the Broncos and I love everyone here, but I have to weigh up my options,” Farnworth told The Australian.
“Obviously I love the Broncos, I have been here since I was 15 years old, but I have to do the best thing for myself.
“It’s nice to know for sure that clubs are interested. I’ve only heard it through the media that clubs are chasing me, but I’ll be sitting down with my management team and my uncle Brian (Foley, legendary Wigan scout) and come up with the best option for me.
“I haven’t been talking to any clubs myself. I have been letting my agents talk to the clubs and then I will meet with them in the next couple of weeks and sit down and go through all the options.
“We haven’t put a deadline on things, but in the next few weeks we will talk to all the clubs and then come up with a plan of attack.”
