Every year, NRL players partake in a game of musical chairs, swapping chairs and switching jerseys as each club looks to build a premiership-winning roster for next season.

Some clubs grow stronger, some fall away, even Penrith who are built on their junior system were forced to recruit from outside. Every single side has a weakness they're looking to cover, a hole in their outfit.

So which player will change your club's fortunes in 2023? A superstar or a young gun, a toiler or someone flashy?

Here is every club's biggest signature for the upcoming NRL season.

3. Canterbury Bulldogs

Reed Mahoney

While Viliame Kikau steals the spotlight, Reed Mahoney is the signature that'll drag the Dogs from the cusp of the top eight to contenders.

The headgear-clad rake was key in Parramatta's charge to the Grand Final, as tough as he is skilful, notably his kicking game flying under the radar and taking a stack of pressure off Matt Burton.

For a side that's struggled in attack at times, Mahoney's arrival is set to turn Belmore's fortunes upside down.

  1. Oregon Kaufusi is the only “name” player Cronulla has bought, but Kevin Iro’s son, Kayal, has more potential to show some X-factor for the Sharks.
