England and Brisbane Broncos centre Herbie Farnworth linked with surprise switch

Tomorrow is a big day in the NRL despite the fact the start of their season is still months away.

Why you might ask? Because tomorrow clubs can officially approach, negotiate and agree deals with players entering the final year of their current deals.

Some huge names are amongst the group capable of negotiating tomorrow with 40% of the league’s players entering the final year of their contracts. The likes of Latrell Mitchell and Mitchell Moses are available as is former Wigan Warriors star Jackson Hastings.

Furthermore, England internationals Victor Radley and Herbie Farnworth are also available to negotiate with from tomorrow as is Dom Young.

A lot has been made of Young’s future with five Sydney clubs said to be weighing up making a move for him whilst Radley seems set to stay with the Roosters but could be joined Herbie Farnworth with the Daily Telegraph suggesting that a move for the centre to the tri-colours in 2024.

However, the publication is also reporting that the Brisbane man is keen on playing fullback which in the NRL comes with more money and greater status.

The Englishman certainly has all the qualities needed to shine at fullback with pace, power and skill but a move to the Roosters would not see him move to the number one position.

However, it could see him become the long term successor to star man Latrell Mitchell who himself left the Roosters to become a fullback and has never been replaced long term.
