Leeds Rhinos named their squad numbers in mid-November which normally signals the end of recruitment.
However, the Rhinos could add another two players to that squad ahead of the 2024 season.
Serious About Rugby League understands that Leeds could make some small movements ahead of the new season.
The Rhinos are set to re-consider their squad after the New Year. Their movement will be determined by departures out of the door and namely the future of Derrell Olpherts. The former Castleford Tigers winger has been linked with Leigh Leopards and Bradford Bulls.
Should he leave, the Rhinos will likely sign Luke Kershaw who has been training at the club in recent times.
They could also add rugby union prop Lewis Boyce to their ranks ahead of the new season after being on trial at the club. Crucially, as a new player to the sport he wouldn’t count on their cap.
He would add depth but is likely to play in the reserves more often initially but fans are still likely to see him frequently at Headingely.
This is because, Leeds Rhinos Reserves and U18s will play in Double Header fixtures at AMT Headingley Rugby Stadium next season before a number of Betfred Super League men’s games, meaning supporters can see more rugby on a match day for the price of one ticket.
First up at AMT Headingley, newly promoted London Broncos will visit in May alongside their Reserves team, then in June the U18s will play in their first doubleheader against Huddersfield Giants before the men’s team take on Leigh Leopards.
There are plans for Leeds Rhinos Women to play in doubleheaders at AMT Headingley and details of these will be announced when the fixtures are revealed in the new year.
