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.

Zero Tackle have compiled the current status of every NRL club for 2024, with signings, losses, players still off-contract, full squads, best 17, and an overview of what every club still needs to be successful come next season.

You can use our easy dropdown menu below to navigate between each club, and we will update this every time there is a signing or player movement for next year so that you can keep on top of how your club is shaping up for next season.

What they still need

Karl Oloapu (after he comes back from injury) is likely to be given the season-long keys to the number six jumper without better options on the market - and at any rate, the club's contract for Oloapu is a big show of faith. However, Phil Gould has admitted in the past that he is likely to transition into the lock-forward position.

This will give Toby Sexton the number six jumper, while Jaeman Salmon and Blake Taaffe will also fight for minutes, and there is a school of thought that suggests Oloapu will become a lock forward.

In the forwards, Ryan Sutton and Max King will lock down the middle, with Chris Patolo also in the squad. However, they will be without key enforcers Franklin Pele and Luke Thompson.



  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?
