With the time for wheeling and dealing very much underway throughout the tiers of rugby league, contracts are being signed left, right and centre.
For some players, though, it is a time of anxiety and trying to put themselves in the shop window in order to attract any potential suitors.
At Hull FC, there is likely to be some turnaround with a number of high-profile players coming off contract.
Head coach Brett Hodgson has already handed a deal to exciting young man Connor Wynne who has excelled in 2022 after being a chance in the centres.
But, there are still 11 others without a home confirmed for 2023 and beyond:
Jordan Johnstone, Cameron Scott, Danny Houghton, Jamie Shaul, Josh Bowden, Josh Reynolds, Manu Ma’u, Mitieli Vulikijapani, Joe Lovodua, Luke Gale.
Interestingly, Ma’u signed a one-year deal back in 2022 as did Gale upon arriving at the MKM Stadium whilst halfback partner Reynolds is coming towards the end of his two-year contract.
Lovodua was given a chance to impress by Hodgson on a one-year deal and he has done just that whilst Vulikijapani has underlined his credentials as a good squad player to have.
Houghton has surpassed his 400th career appearance and may well hang up the boots, though Johnstone and Scott will be hunting new deals.
Bowden has been linked with a move to Featherstone Rovers.
