The signing could not have come at a better time than for the Broncos, who have found themselves back in the top eight and are firm for final football after missing the previous two seasons.
Farnworth, who has played 51 games for the Broncos, has cemented himself as the club’s most damaging outside back.
Through 10 games in 2022, he has made seven attempts to his name.
The Dolphins will compete next season under legendary coach Wayne Bennett.
