One of the most important things for any Super League’s side recruitment is their use of overseas quota spots.
But which clubs still have quota spots available?
Castleford Tigers: 0
The Tigers have no quota spots left for next year after the signings of Albert Vete and Jacob Miller for next season meaning that side of their recruitment is done. They have since focused on the signing of more young British players, such as Jack Broadbent.
Catalans Dragons: 2
Though the Dragons have signed Tongan star Siosiua Taukieaho and Manu Ma’u for next year, the loss of Sam Kasiano left them with one quota spot now increased following the departures of Josh Drinkwater to Warrington Wolves and of course the release of Dylan Napa. They have signed Adam Keirghan from Sydney Roosters for next year but still have two quota spots left potentially for a halfback and a centre.
Huddersfield Giants: 0
Following the loss of Danny Levi on compassionate grounds, the Giants used their last quota spot left which they to replace him with the return of Nathan Peats.
Hull FC: 0
Hull FC used their final quota spot on the signing of Jake Clifford to complete their new look spine and allow Tex Hoy to replace Jake Connor at fullback.
Hull KR: 0
The Robins have no quota spots left for next year after the signing of Rhys Kennady and co.
Leeds Rhinos: 0
Leeds’ quota situation was a strange one. The departure of Bodene Thompson to Bradford Bulls created a quota spot which was used by the arrival of Gold Coast Titans prop Sam Lisone despite the fact the Rhinos needed a centre. Then Matt Prior retired allowing them to sign Nene MacDonald and complete their quota.
Leigh Leopards: 1
Two weeks ago Leigh would have been at negative one with eight quota players instead of seven. MacDonald’s move to Leeds took them to the limit but now that Blake Ferguson has left on compassionate grounds the Leopards have an opening. Derek Beaumont said the Leopards weren’t done with transfer business even after they made 10 signings as they were looking for a middle forward. Could they use this quota spot for that or perhaps a back after the loss of two?
Salford Red Devils: 0
Salford used their final quota spot on Sam Stone from the Leopards. One won’t be opening up any time soon either with key men like Tim Lafai tied down to a new deal whilst they are hoping to do the same with Brodie Croft.
St Helens: 0
The Champions did very little recruitment. They have brought in Wesley Brunies and Tee Riston from Barrow Raiders to add depth to their outside backs. They had no quota spots available going into the off-season.
Wakefield Trinity: 0
Wakefield had three quota spots in October but have used all three on Kevin Proctor, Renouf Atoni and Catalans Dragons’ Samisoni Langi. They have also signed Englishman Morgan Smith meaning they could yet make one more signing with the original plan to bring in five players for 2023.
Warrington Wolves: 0
Warrington used their final quota spot to sign Josh Drinkwater and complete their squad with the arrival of a halfback.
Wigan Warriors: 0
The Warriors have used up all their quota spots for next year and are putting them to good use with the likes of Jai Field and Bevan French.
