England star given huge boost in his pursuit of positional switch

We have all seen what Herbie Farnworth can do at centre.

The Brisbane Broncos and England star has shone there both at club and international level in 2022.

His two tries against Samoa which nearly saved England’s blushes in the Rugby League World Cup semi-final last week were top drawer.

However, Farnworth has ambitions, like so many NRL stars, of switching to fullback in the near future.

With Farnworth in the final year of his deal at the Broncos he can negotiate with other clubs with his desire to play one helping propel the rumour mill at present.

That and the fact he is set to receive some bumper offers and the Broncos already have some top earners at the club.

This has led to former St Helens star and now Canterbury Bulldogs enforcer pushing for Farnworth to be signed by the Bulldogs to play fullback.

New club The Dolphins are also interested in making him their fullback whilst Sydney Roosters are reportedly interested in him as a centre.

However, the Broncos may have given themselves a boost in keeping him as Farnworth has edged closer to their number one jersey.

It was originally set to be a three way battle for the shirt in 2023 with Farnworth up against Reece Walsh and Tesi Niu.

However, Niu has now been told he can talk to rival clubs due to his desire to cement first team rugby according to Fox League.

This could see him become The Dolphins’ fullback and opens the door a little more for Farnworth to secure the positional switch he desires.
