England World Cup star’s future becomes more secure as NRL man given permission to talk to another club

There has been plenty of discussion about the fullback spot at Brisbane Broncos.

Tesi Niu was certainly in the running for the role as was the returning Reece Walsh.

Meanwhile, England’s Rugby League World Cup star Herbie Farnworth was keen on making the switch from centre to fullback.

These ambitions coupled with being in the final year of his current deal sparked debate that Farnworth could be on the move with new club the Dolphins, led by ex-England and Great Britain boss Wayne Bennett and former St Helens coach Kristian Woolf, interested,

However, the Courier Mail has reported that it is Tesi Niu who has been given permission to talk to the Dolphins as a move becomes likely.

This would secure Farnworth’s immediate future though it would not answer the question where will he be in 2024 with Canterbury Bulldogs and Sydney Roosters both interested.

Now though it is Niu on the move and Dolphins CEO Terry Reader confirmed the club’s interest in the 21-year-old.

“Tesi was given permission to talk to other clubs so we’ll see what happens,” he told the Courier Mail.

“We’ve still got spots to fill and there’s quality players out there.

“There’s a lot of time before we run out on that field in March and plenty to happen in the player market.

“History says January is the biggest month for player movement and I’m sure this year will be no different.”

The Dolphins still have five spots left on the roster for 2023.
