Herbie refuses dolphins to stay in Bronco, Bird in Contract Standoff, Highness



The NRL is set to have a Bronco in 2023 after a long line of NRL talents to return a lucrative offer from English center Herbie Farnworth Dolphins.

The Broncos may announce on Monday that the rising star has extended his term at the club for next season after Wayne Bennett’s new team tried to oust him.

Farnworth, 23, has played 51 matches for Brisbane since his 2019 debut and has crossed seven attempts in 10 appearances this year as the club climbed to fifth place on the ladder with a 7-4 record.

The Dolphins are desperate to get a big name for their foundation season after almost missing out, including Harry Grant, Kalin Ponga, Jahrom Hughes, Brandon Smith and Reed Mahoney.

The bird hangs the dragon in a line

Despite agreeing to a new deal last month, Dragon star Jack Bird has yet to put pen to paper on his new deal.

He accepted an offer worth about $ 1.1 million for the next two years, including a “reciprocal option” between the club and the player for the 2025 season.

Despite speculation that the West Tigers are still trying to convert him to Concord, the Dragons are confident that Bird will finally sign the deal in the next few days.

Ellavar Jr., Bird won the 2015 Daly M Rookie of the Year at Cronulla in 2015 where he played a key part in winning the Premiership the following season and represented NSW at five origins.

A profitable switch in Brisbane in 2018 was damaged due to two serious knee injuries that limited him to just 17 matches in 3 years before returning to St. George’s Elwara.

His form was solid, though not spectacular, as he changed center, back row, and fifth-eighth row.
