There are a number of clubs who could make further signings ahead of 2023.
“The plan” at Leigh Leopards is to make further signings according to owner Derek Beaumont as he also revealed they wanted a middle forward whilst a back seems like a wise investment after the loss of Blake Ferguson on compassionate grounds and Nene MacDonald’s move to Leeds Rhinos.
Salford Red Devils also have a quota spot they could use but the club who really do need signings is Catalans Dragons.
They need a prop after allowing Dylan Napa to leave and missing out on former Warrington Wolves man Ben Murdoch-Masila. But they also need a centre after letting Samisoni Langi join Wakefield Trinity and Dean Whare head to the Elite One Championship.
So, here are three centres who they could sign to solve their problem.
This one has been rumoured routinely. The cousin of Huddersfield Giants signing Esan Marsters, Steven impressed in the Rugby League World Cup for the Cook Islands. He would make a savvy signing to go alongside Adam Keighran.
Capable of playing centre and backrow, Reece Hoffman of the Canterbury Bulldogs would be a smart signing for the Dragons. He offers great physicality which is something the French side always want.
Brother of one of the best NRL players at the moment and the man who broke English hearts in the Rugby League World Cup. Also a product of the best youth system at the moment, Penrith Panthers, he would bring definite quality and versatility to the Dragons.
