Brisbane Broncos star Herbie Farnworth reportedly set for mammoth move

If there is one player that is just about getting ready to hit the headlines consistently, it is Brisbane Broncos star Herbie Farnworth.

The England international centre has become one of the most consistent centres in the NRL over the past few years for the Brisbane Broncos and he became one of the most sought after stars earlier in the season.

However, Brisbane managed to tie Farnworth down to a 12-month contract with the promise of playing at fullback.

That promise, however, looks set to be broken with the signing of Reece Walsh from the New Zealand Warriors, whilst Selwyn Cobbo’s lucrative multi-million dollar deal will see the teenager compete for that elusive number one shirt.

With that in mind, Fox Sports has revealed that a number of NRL clubs are now circling Farnworth in a bid to make him their number one choice at fullback – and it has been revealed today that the Dolphins are ready to recircle their man whom they missed out on for 2023, though a number of Sydney clubs are reportedly keen on getting Farnworth’s signature.

Farnworth himself revealed earlier in the year that he had to ‘weigh up’ his options before signing a short-term deal at the Broncos.

“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.”

Farnworth was heavily linked with a move to new NRL side the Dolphins for 2023 with head coach Wayne Bennett an avid admirer of the centre, but that move fell through as the Englishman penned a new deal with the Broncos.

However, it’s unlikely that the skilled outside back will want to remain at a club where his desired choice of fullback is too far out of reach, and, with Bennett’s club ready to pay a massive whack to gain his services, Farnworth is unlikely to remain a Bronco beyond 2023.
