There’s plenty of top notch players looking for clubs in 2023 including a former Man of Steel, a former Lance Todd trophy winner and a former Super League Champion.
So, here’s a dream team made up of the best free agents around at present.
Fullback: Caleb Aekins
After starring for Wales in the Rugby League World Cup, Caleb Aekins is on the hunt for a new club after a sensational season for Leigh Leopards. The fullback showed great pace all season ripping teams to shreds and would make a fine Super League fullback because of his ability to score tries and be a real running threat.
Wingers: Kyle Evans & Matty Russell
Aekins’ Wales teammate Kyle Evans has really caught the eye in the Rugby League World Cup with great speed and physicality. It’s surprising he has yet to secure a club. Another powerful winger in the shape of Matty Russell who is as explosive as they come. With back of experience, he could be a great signing for a Super League club.
Centres: Samisoni Langi & Krisnan Inu
Samisoni Langi is on the hunt for a new club just over a year after he shone for Catalans Dragons as he made the Grand Final. A powerful runner, he is the ideal modern centre. As for Krisnan Inu, a great goal kicker, he also offers top notch versatility capable of playing wing or centre.
Halfback: Tony Gigot & Luke Gale
A former Man of Steel winner and a former Lance Todd Trophy winner are both looking for new clubs in 2023. The two would actually make a great halfback partnership with Gale a top organiser and Gigot a creative spark.
Props: Romain Navarrete & Maxime Puech
Two of Toulouse Olympique’s forwards are on the look for a new club going into next season including former Super League Champion Navarrete formerly of the Wigan Warriors.
Hooker: Lloyd White
A former Super League hooker in the shape of the sharp and skilful Lloyd White who spent time in Super League with Crusaders and Widnes Vikings helping both sides to the play-offs.
Second-Rows: Corentin Le Cam & Brad Takairangi
How these two don’t have a club is a real surprise. Corentin Le Cam is a tall and powerful backrower and has been let go off by the Catalans Dragons though it seems he’s headed to rugby union. Meanwhile, the skilful and versatile Brad Takairangi would be a real attacking threat for any Super League side.
Loose-Forward: Elijah Taylor
Salford Red Devils’ brilliant and hard working loose-forward doesn’t have a club yet but wherever he ends up, they will have an experienced and hard working forward to marshal the middle of the field.
