The first-ever Dolphins' training session has been held on Monday, while most bottom-eight clubs were also back on deck.
The NRL season is expected to begin on the first weekend in March, leaving just four months for players to train and, for those limited to development or train and trial contracts, push for upgrades.
Zero Tackle have compiled the full list of every contracted player in the NRL, even with collective bargaining agreements continuing in the background, with the status of every squad now clear.
Note: Some development contracts may not be included.
Squads are correct as of 1pm (AEDT), November 7.
The Broncos have just two spots remaining on their Top 30 roster for 2023, and one of those could well go to development player Xavier Willison, who has been impressive in limited opportunity.
Number of contracted players: 28
Number of development players: 2
Tyson Gamble (Newcastle Knights), Zac Hosking (Penrith Panthers), Jamayne Isaako (The Dolphins), Ryan James (retired), Rhys Kennedy (Hull Kingston Rovers), Brenko Lee (The Dolphins), Te Maire Martin (New Zealand Warriors), David Mead (retired), Jake Turpin (Sydney Roosters)
