Leeds Rhinos have already made some big signings such as former Huddersfield Giants halfback Matt Frawley, exciting fullback Lachie Miller and prop Mickael Goudemand.
But they still need to get some signings done to have the squad they want and according to Leeds Live they have made a big move for Salford Red Devils star and former Man of Steel Brodie Croft.
According to Leeds Live, Leeds have offered a six figure sum for Croft and this has led to Leeds fans getting excited that the big announcement coming will be Brodie Croft.
Leeds confirmed that they will “unveil a significant development for Headingley Stadium with Chairman Paul Caddick and Chief Executive Gary Hetherington both present.”
This announcement won’t be the arrival of Croft with the announcement set to be about the stadium.
Players from both the men’s and women’s teams will be present.
Caddick is rarely present in these kinds of announcements pointing to a major announcement.
Could this have a big impact on 2024?
Rohan Smith recently spoke about next year:
“There’s a lot of spirit, there’s a lot of ability, and there’s a lot of a belief in this group, the group that played, but also the group in and around that are injured and unavailable. So we’ve learned a lot.
“We’ve let ourselves down at various times this year. Some other people have let us down as well and left us short on troops at times, but we’ve kept fronting up and they’ve kept connected and they’ve worked together and they’re good mates. They haven’t turned.
“It’s still been enjoyable to me. Hard, but enjoyable and that’s what life and sport is supposed to be. Last year going to the grand final, it was hard and enjoyable as well. So nothing much shifts for me.
“There’s a lot of belief in that group. There’s a lot of good people. There’s a lot of good things happened in this club, behind the scenes, throughout the year. And there’s foundations being laid.
“It’s difficult and I respect the fans for keep turning up and keep singing. I respect that they’re disappointed as well on the overall season, as we all are. We all live and breathe it every minute, every day. All we want to do is do well for the club and we’ll be fighting back next pre-season, that’s for sure.
“Lots of review this week. Staff have got a full week of it, it’ll probably be the hardest week of the season for the staff to debrief and to get forward planning.
“The players will have a debrief later in the week individually, medical and that stuff. That’s important, a really important week for us this week.
“Then there’s a bunch of recruitment that’s going on in the background to get those last few spots signed off and then the planning really starts which to me is a really enjoyable and fun part of the season. No matter how this season finished, getting the next one prepared is something I love to do.”
“There’s probably three spots I reckon, depending if there’s any other movement amongst our roster.”
