  1. So stats against weak teams don’t count...?? Of all the statistical data that is available on Herbie Farnworth, I have yet to come across anything poor. So no, I’m not being selective. You’ve obviously got a downer on the lad Toppy. It’s a shame that you can’t acknowledge the fact that a young British athlete is more than holding his own in the toughest Rugby competition on the planet. Never mind. I’m still hoping he’s got a Welsh granny......
  2. Also.... https://www.nrl.com/news/2021/03/30/metre-eating-farnworth-a-vb-hard-earned-standout/ Not too bad for an average NRL centre.
  3. Yeah...... but what does he offer that other English centres don’t?? ...........
  4. True. But Saint Toppy alluded to plenty of rookie errors in his overall game. The stats don’t back that up. I agree with him that he hasn’t been helped by his teammates. He’s had a variety of defensive partners this season. That doesn’t help. I’d genuinely be interested to know what centres England have at their disposal that are spot on with their defensive reads.
  5. Statistically Herbie Farnworth is recorded as making 1 error per game. In 6 games he has made 88 tackles, 11 missed tackles a tackle efficiency rate of 85.5 %. That doesn't really match your appraisal of him. As far as experience goes, in my opinion he is more experienced of playing against top quality centres week in week out than the vast majority of SL centres.
  6. That may well apply to some Broncos players. But you couldn’t be more wrong about Herbie presuming this.
  7. https://www.broncos.com.au/news/2021/04/23/match-highlights-eels-v-broncos/ To be fair. Farnworth was playing right centre as opposed to his usual left centre position. Against a team running red hot. Herbie and his winger were left isolated on numerous occasions. Some of those tries that you mention, while scored on the Broncos right, were nowhere near where Herbie was defending. You’re entitled to your opinion though. I could only see one try where I would say that he was at fault. You are entitled to your opinion though. But I don’t think that this performance rules him out of inte
  8. One thing that Herbie Farnworth cannot be accused of is lack of commitment. The kid is totally dedicated and extremely professional.
  9. He got into the Broncos 1st team squad but copped a serious injury in a pre season game that stopped his progress there. He was doing really well there by all accounts.
  10. Thanks for putting me right.
  11. I thought that this was essential criteria for SL clubs........
  12. Afghan winters are pretty cold. Could be a problem in the heat if they align their season with Super League.....
  13. Shoulder injury. Bit of soreness that needs a bit of a rest
