How Wigan Warriors and Huddersfield Giants men could be key as England star chased by four clubs

Herbie Farnworth laid down a marker during the Rugby League World Cup.

As England crashed out at the semi-final stage, Farnworth underlined his quality which has been seen during the entire 2022 campaign at Brisbane Broncos other than when he copped a nasty injury.

Now keen to move to fullback and receiving huge offers from rival clubs having entered the last 12 months of his current deal, he is stirring up plenty of interest especially as Brisbane Broncos have Reece Walsh cemented at fullback and have plenty of top earners already at the club.

According to the Daily Telegraph, his future is still “up in the air.”

It has been repeatedly stated that Canterbury Bulldogs could be interested in signing him as a fullback whilst Brisbane would ideally keep him.

Meanwhile, new club The Dolphins, under former England and Great Britain boss Wayne Bennett and former St Helens boss Kristian Woolf, are interested in him as are the Wests Tigers.

The most interesting one is perhaps the Newcastle Knights. They already have star England winger Dom Young in their squad as well as Great Britain international and former Salford Red Devils star Jackson Hastings in the squad.

They are to bring in Will Pryce from Huddersfield Giants in 2024 and Kai Pearce-Paul from Wigan Warriors in a year too.

Meanwhile, they are keen on a fullback after letting Tex Hoy join Hull FC and wanting Kayln Ponga to play in the halves with Hastings.
