In less than a week Super League clubs can begin negotiating with players in the final year of their current contracts.
So, with that in mind, here is your side’s player that they must tie down.
Castleford Tigers: Niall Evalds
A top fullback, the problem he has faced since joining Castleford has been fitness. He was in outstanding form back in 2019 and won the Lance Todd Trophy in 2021. He makes the Tigers into a different side.
Catalans Dragons: Arthur Mourgue
Another fullback, Arthur Mourgue is electric with pace and evasion as well as the ability to play anywhere in the spine. He will be wanted by a lot of clubs.
Huddersfield Giants: Tui Lolohea
Huddersfield made 29 assists in 2022 as he became one of the league’s top fullbacks. There was no player better at forcing goal line drop outs than Lolohea. He too will be chased by a number of clubs.
Hull FC: Brad Dwyer
Another player who is absolutely electric. We saw at Leeds Rhinos his ability to turn games on their heads in an instance and that will be a huge asset to any side.
Hull KR: Lachlan Coote
One of Super League’s most underappreciated players in recent times, a three-time Super League Champion and the perfect fullback in many ways. He gives the Robins brilliant balance.
Leeds Rhinos: Sam Walters
Many Leeds fans are worried Walters is headed elsewhere in 2024 as he reportedly heads to the open market. A top young forward, almost every club will be interested.
Leigh Leopards: Kai O’Donnell
Speaking of top forwards, Kai O’Donnell has been outstanding since joining Leigh and has risen to the challenge of playing in Super League.
Salford Red Devils: Ken Sio
Over the last few years you could argue that Ken Sio has been the best winger. Across the 2021 and 2022 seasons no player scored more tries than Sio who has been named in the last two Dream Teams.
St Helens: Sione Mata’utia
There are plenty of players off contract at St Helens but perhaps it is key to sign on Sione Mata’utia. Understated since joining the Saints, a lot of his best rugby is still to come.
Wakefield Trinity: Mason Lino
In the midst of a relegation battle, Wakefield will find it tough tying down their key players but if there is one they wish they could keep it is the centre of their attack Mason Lino who will no doubt be chased by a number of clubs.
Warrington Wolves: Daryl Clark
Speaking of being chased by rival clubs there have been rumours that St Helens want Daryl Clark to replace the retiring James Roby. Thus, the Wolves must work to tie down the hooker.
Wigan Warriors: Abbas Miski
In the last few weeks Miski has established himself in the first team at Wigan and is scoring tries for fun. Thus, it makes sense for the Warriors to tie him down.
