The Dolphins

Tug of War over Farnworth

The 22-year-old’s future has been in the headlines for months ever since it was revealed he was on the wish list of Dolphins coach Wayne Bennett.

Farnworth has now paused extension negotiations with the Broncos until at least the start of the season in March, opening the door for the Dolphins to nail their target, according to News Corp.

Dolphins set to land Storm star... but Bellamy strikes back in $2.5m move for 105kg teen beast

Less than a week after landing the key signature of the Melbourne Storm front rower Jesse Bromwich, the Dolphins are now aiming to turn the Bromwich brothers into a package deal for 2023.

Kenny Bromwich, 31, has played 192 NRL games since debuting for the Melbourne Storm in 2013 and was part of the purple reign 2017 and 2020 premiership-winning sides.

Dolphins land big gun to ease pressure

Bromwich, who has also captained New Zealand, will join the Dolphins on a two-year deal from their inaugural season in 2023.

The prop will turn 35 halfway through the final year of his contract.

Bromwich has played all of 272 NRL games at the Storm and will be a huge chance of becoming the Dolphins first captain.

The Kiwi is the fifth player to join the Dolphins since they were announced as the NRL’s 17th team last October.

Bromwich will join Storm teammate Felise Kaufusi, Eels forward Ray Stone, Broncos flyer Jamayne Isaako and young gun Valynce Te Whare.

Now, English rugby union scouts have got their eye on the England-born and raised outside back, according to Wide World of Sports.

The 29-year-old has played his entire 152-game NRL career at the Storm so far, and will complete one last season in purple before joining Wayne Bennett.

The signing is a coup for the expansion club, who have seen a few big names ink deals elsewhere over the past few weeks.

Dolphins' NRL team chief executive Terry Reader welcomed the signing.

"It is imperative the Dolphins build a squad that contains players of representative calibre and Felise certainly fits that mould," Reader said.

The 20-year-old junior Queensland Origin hooker is regarded as one of the best up-and-coming No.9's in the game, but has the ability to play lock forward like Melbourne's Brandon Smith.

Graham has been signed on a development contract with the Dolphins with the potential to be upgraded if he is ready for the NRL by the 2023 season. He also has a train-and-trial contract with the Broncos for the upcoming pre-season and could be picked up by Brisbane for 2022.
