Herbie Farnworth Re-Signs With Broncos
Thursday 30th July, 2020
Exciting speedster Herbie Farnworth has committed to the Brisbane Broncos until at least the end of the 2022 season.
In a major boost for the Club, the talented 20-year-old outside back has penned a two-year extension for the 2021 and 2022 seasons.
Farnworth, who had a childhood soccer scholarship with Manchester United before moving to Australia to pursue his dream of playing for the Broncos, made his NRL debut last year in the Round 16 upset win over the Sharks in Sydney.
Also a goalkicker, Farnworth has now played 12 games on the wing and in the centres, and shapes as a long-term member of the Broncos backline into the future.
Broncos Coach Anthony Seibold said: “Herbie’s re-signing is great for the club, he has a really strong work ethic and a lot of potential.
“His journey from the UK to Australia is a terrific story and he has shown a lot of resilience and perseverance over a number of years to create the opportunity he has at the Broncos.
“Herbie has also shown fantastic commitment to us when there was high levels of interest from other clubs, and he should be applauded for that loyalty.”
