It is vital Leeds Rhinos get their recruitment right going into 2024 if they want to compete with the likes of Wigan Warriors and St Helens again next year.
The Rhinos have already drafted in former Huddersfield Giants halfback Matt Frawley and Catalans Dragons forward Mickael Goudemand.
But their most exciting signing has been Lachie Miller from Newcastle Knights but this could be rivalled by Paul Momirovski who has been linked with Leeds from the Sydney Roosters and according to the Mole of Wide World of Sport is set to make the move across.
Recently Rohan Smith spoke about recruitment and the squad:
“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.
“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.”
