Farnworth, who was born and raised in England, is already on the radar of the Dolphins for their inaugural season in the NRL in 2023.

The Broncos are keen to retain the rising centre, who has been a ray of sunlight in the club’s past two dismal seasons.
But the Dolphins, desperate to sign outside backs, will pay ‘overs’ for the young speedster while English rugby also has plenty of cash at its disposal.

He has been a steady improver in a team that has struggled to score points, crossing for nine tries in his 41 games and producing plenty of chances for his outside men.
