NRL prodigy “humbled” by England star

There is an intriguing battle going on at Brisbane Broncos which could determine the future of one of England’s brightest stars in Herbie Farnworth.

The star centre wants to play fullback and is now batting with NRL prodigy Reece Walsh for the number one jersey.

Speaking about this battle for fullback, Walsh admitted he had been humbled by it.

“Obviously I signed to be fullback, but once Kev told me that nothing’s guaranteed and that there’s boys fighting for the position, I feel like it sort of humbles you a bit and makes you a lot more grounded and wary about what I do,” he said to Fox League.

“I can’t really slip up or have a bad session here or there, I have to put my best foot forward to be the best I can be for the team.

“Knowing that there’s that competition there it makes you fight a lot harder and when it does get to the season, I know that I might get the position or I might not but if I do get it I’m not going to sit back and chill because someone can come in and take it.”

This comes as Walsh returns to the club after a spell with the New Zealand Warriors.

“Not at all,” Walsh said when asked if he regretted his Broncos exit.

“Obviously leaving was hard, but I left to go chase an opportunity to play in the NRL. I got a lot of lessons out of leaving and I don’t think I’d be the player I am now without leaving and coming back.

“I’ve got a lot of stuff that I know now and have experienced in first grade to bring back. If I get put into situations on the field and off the field, now I know how to deal with it.

“I don’t regret leaving but it was hard, I’m just happy that I’m back now.

“Growing up I always wanted to play for the Broncos and when I left it did feel like maybe one day I might get to come back and do that. I didn’t know when that was going to be and it was sooner than I thought.

“I love the club, I only missed one game the boys played so when the opportunity for me to come back and put on Broncos jersey I jumped at it.”
