England & Brisbane Broncos star set for move to one of three clubs due to increased value from World Cup

As England crashed out of the Rugby League World Cup to a Stephen Crichton drop goal in Golden Point at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on Saturday in the semi-finals, Shaun Wane’s side only had themselves to blame.

That said, a couple of players really shone for England including Herbie Farnworth.

At 20-12, he showed immense strength to twist and turn out of some big tackle attempts to smuggle the ball to the ground for a try that England back in it.

Meanwhile, at 26-20 Farnworth backed up George Williams’ break and showed great pace to make it 26-all and send the game into Golden Point.

According to the Daily Telegraph, his heroics are set to catapult Farnworth to the front of the queue when it comes to the players entering the last year of their current deals who can negotiate with other teams after the 1st November.

Though Brisbane will definitely want to keep him at the club but could very well command a $800,000 deal and with the Broncos tight to the cap keeping him may be difficult.

So, a move could be likely to one of three clubs according to the Daily Telegraph. There was recently a rumour that he could be headed to Sydney Roosters. That would be dependent on Luke Keary. There was talk another head knock would see him retire which could see Joey Manu move to six and Farnworth replace the Kiwi superstar.

However, if he wants to play fullback according to the Daily Telegraph a move to The Dolphins or Canterbury Bulldogs would be his best bet.
