Leeds Rhinos have already confirmed a number of fantastic signings for next year and their recruitment is alongside Wigan Warriors and Hull KR as the best in the league as the 2024 season looms behind the internationals.
The Rhinos began their recruitment with the understated arrival of Mickael Goudemand from the Catalans Dragons, a move made possible by French international Justin Sangare.
Rohan Smith would then secure a further two signings before the end of the 2023 Super League season.
Former Huddersfield Giants halfback Matt Frawley was signed to take Aidan Sezer’s number seven shirt. This came with a touch of irony given Sezer had replaced Frawley at Huddersfield first.
The eight time Super League Champions then completed a move for Lachie Miller. An electric fullback who has played for Newcastle Knights and Cronulla Sharks in the NRL and represented Australia at the Olympics.
Leeds still had plenty of recruitment to get done as the off season began and soon the rumours started to swirl.
The first signing Leeds confirmed was one they had planned for the 2025 season. However, the sudden and unexpected exit of Nene MacDonald saw them move early for Sydney Roosters centre Paul Momirovski.
The former NRL winner will replace MacDonald as Leeds’ number four in 2024 with the Papua New Guinea international signing a four year deal at Salford.
Then came Leeds’ big signings as they completed a double coup for Brodie Croft and Andy Ackers from the AJ Bell Stadium.
Leeds paid a combined £300,000 fee for the duo who have both signed three year deals at the club.
This isn’t the only business Leeds have completed however with the Rhinos also set to announce the arrival of Castleford Tigers youngster Kieran Hudson who is Leeds born and bred.
His exit has already been confirmed by the Tigers with their Head of Recruitment Danny Wilson revealing that he is Leeds bound.
Leeds are now set to announce his arrival following their big announcement that Croft and Ackers are Headingley bound as well.
That may not be the end of their recruitment either with Serious About Rugby League understanding that the Rhinos have a few more pieces of recruitment to secure.
