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

The Sea Eagles, heading into their second season under Anthony Seibold, still have a tiny bit of wiggle room with two spots open in the squad - it is unlikely to go any higher than that, though, with no contracted players likely to be heading out of the club at the end of this campaign.

In what is a very solid best 17, their recent signings in the backs give the club plenty of depth, with Jaxson Paulo and Tommy Talau both unable to find a way into a starting side that already is without Karl Lawton and Jake Arthur, who made the switch from the Parramatta Eels in the middle of this season.

It's clearly in the forwards where Manly needs to add plenty of depth across their final six signings. Matt Lodge, who is with the club during the second half of this season on a train and trial deal, will likely be one signature they aim to keep, while Aaron Woods has been linked with signing a development contract to remain with the club.

Given some of the relative youth in their forward pack with names like Taniela Paseka, Toafofoa Sipley and Sean Keppie, Manly could well look outside the club for further experience in their final roster spots, while promotions for Jamie Humphreys and Jacob Sykes from the development squad could also take place.



  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?
