The 2023 season now seems like it ended many, many months ago.
With a large number of players returning to pre-season training, attention has quickly and firmly turned to the 2024 campaign.
With a new season comes new hope, new opportunities and most importantly of all, new recruits!
Today I'm going to rank the ins, outs and re-signings of each of the clubs who finished outside of the finals in 2023.
Not every player will be mentioned, just the ones I see making an impact.
1. Wests Tigers
Major outs: Luke Brooks
The most interesting recruitment move for the Tigers in '24 if the departure of Luke Brooks. This felt well overdue for both player and club alike.
The club simply had to re-sign future star Jahream Bula, and did so very quickly. Api Koroisau's contract extension should be celebrated from the rooftops.
Both Latu brothers arrivals will be looked back upon as club changing, albeit in a few seasons time.
All the moves made were positive but unfortunately it doesn't fill me with confidence that the side is anywhere near Final contenders next season.
