The 2023 season might be gearing up for the finals, but in the ever-changing world of the NRL transfer market, attention is already shifting to 2024 and beyond.

Every NRL side has less than ten spots available in their Top 30 for next season, while a select handful of clubs are closing in on a full complement already.

What they still need

The most immediate and pressing need for the Raiders is to find a five-eighth to partner Jamal Fogarty in the halves, with Jack Wighton to depart at the end of the 2023 season.

At the moment, Ethan Strange and Kaeo Weekes are the best-contracted options, but he is yet to debut in the NRL and is more of a number seven than a number six.

There are also not many suitable options coming off-contract at the end of the season, so it's a tricky situation at best for Ricky Stuart's green machine as they navigate who will line up in the number six jumper next year.

The retirement of Jarod Croker creates the intriguing question as to which players will be the first ones used as backup if injuries occur. Albert Hopoate and James Schiller are all options.

Canberra's forward pack looks quite strong on paper, albeit lacking some depth, but they won't be going out and spending big money to bring another marquee forward to the club with an appropriate mix of experience and talent in the current roster - having just signed Morgan Smithies from the Super League. Still, another middle forward who is first-grade capable may not go astray in terms of building depth.



  1. Sharks: New signings NIL. Roster spots available NIL.
    Don’t expect any improvement this year if Craig Fitzgibbon does not give game-time to the players the club has been developing.
    If he thinks that they are never going to be better than NSW Cup, why has he re-signed them?
