The start of the 2023 Super League is less than a month away with the new campaign kicking off on the 16th February with Warrington Wolves taking on Leeds Rhinos at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sky Sports.
Thus, most of the transfer business has already been done. That said the likes of Salford Red Devils still have a quota spot available though they are unlikely to use that but meanwhile the other clubs with quota spots are still on the market.
They are Leigh Leopards, who have a quota spot open now that Nene MacDonald has joined Leeds Rhinos and Blake Ferguson leaving on compassionate grounds, and Catalans Dragons who have two quota spots open.
So, here’s three signings that could still happen before the start of the season.
Catalans Dragons – Steven Marsters
The Dragons have confirmed that they are looking for a new centre for the 2023 Super League season after they lost Samisoni Langi to Wakefield Trinity and Dean Whare to the Elite One Championship. They missed out on Featherstone Rovers star Joey Leilua and have been linked with Steven Marsters, brother of Huddersfield Giants signing Esan Marsters, to fill the role after signing Adam Keighran to fill the other centre spot.
Leigh Leopards – Jared Waerea-Hargreaves
Now that they have a quota spot and have replaced Ferguson on the wing with Wigan Warriors man Umyla Hanley, they can focus on signing a middle forward which is an area owner Derek Beaumont confirmed they were interested in as he also confirmed that “the plan” was to make further signings and they have since been linked with former NRL winner and New Zealand international Jared Waerea-Hargreaves. He would be a statement signing from the new boys in Super League.
Catalans Dragons – Ava Seumanufagai
Another club hoping to sign a prop after allowing the release of Dylan Napa after Gil Dudson and Sam Kasiano joined Warrington Wolves, the Dragons have also been linked with Waerea-Hargreaves. However, Leigh seem to be the front runners for him so the best target to consider is ex-Leeds Rhinos man and Challenge Cup winner Seumanufagai.
