Though the 2023 Super League season has yet to begin, preparations for beyond that will have already begun especially as most sides have already done all their business for the 2023 barring the likes of Catalans Dragons, Leigh Leopards and potentially Salford Red Devils.
As in the NRL, considerations will be made to how squads for the 2024 season will look especially after they set the precedent down under of making signings well in advance because of the 1st November rule.
All sides have players off contract at the end of 2023 and they will definitely want to secure some of these players down moving forward, and we will likely start to see this happen sooner rather than later especially as current clubs are allowed to underline what they intend for their current players coming off contract and essentially have first dibs.
So, considering this, which off contract player should Salford Red Devils look to tie down for 2024 and beyond?
This one could not be more obvious. With respect to the other players at the AJ Bell Stadium coming off contract, there is one name that sticks out and Salford have reportedly already begun plans to try and tie him down.
That is Man of Steel Brodie Croft. Sensational in 2022, he will have NRL clubs and Super League clubs chasing his signature. Salford will be determined to tie him down.
