Two Super League clubs set for major signings

There are two Super League clubs set to make signings early on in the 2024 Super League season.

Most clubs have completed their transfer business for 2024 at least for now. Of course, the season can throw curve balls and change plans which lead to signings but for the most part, 10 Super League clubs have settled squads for the new campaign.

However, two clubs are interested in adding further faces to their squad early on in the 2024 Super League season.

One of them is Hull KR. The Robins left the number 18 shirt vacant after the departure of Jordan Abdull and Willie Peters has been open about wanting to sign a halfback to replace the now Catalans Dragons halfback.

Meanwhile, Salford Red Devils have long been in the market for a prop and a winger. The club lost both Ken Sio and Joe Burgess ahead of the new season and are looking for a replacement. They also want to add to their pack a desire only added to by the departure of Alex Gerrard.

Ken Sio’s exit has also left them with a quota spot to use.

Speaking of Salford, their captain Kallum Watkins has spoken ahead of the new season as the club prepare for a clash with his former side Leeds Rhinos in Round One.

With pre-season preparations all-but over, 2024’s edition of the Betfred Super League is almost upon us, and yesterday’s launch gave us a sneak preview of what to expect.

Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, Watkins said: “It’s going to be fireworks, isn’t it?

“It was kind of written with everything going on in the off-season that it was going to be the first game for us.”

Watkins continued: “To play at Headingley, it’s such an iconic place, I had so many great years there and it makes it all the more special to do it with Salford as well, which is a club that means a hell-of-a-lot to me, so exciting times.

“We’ve got a couple of players that were here in the past with Brodie (Croft) and (Andy) Ackers, which makes it more intense, we’re expecting fireworks that’s for sure.

“That’s what it’s all about, that’s what the games all about and getting the season underway, and getting the result at Leeds.”

Last season, a fantastic team performance secured a rare win at a ground where Salford have had so much misfortune over the years.

When asked what we have to do to replicate that, our number 12 said: “Look, we’ve got to come up with a great performance to get our season started; and how we’ll plan, how we’ll prepare will impact that, so we can focus on Leeds.

“It’s a week away now, so it’s exciting times and we can prepare the best we can. For us, it’s about competing at a high level and making sure we’re ready.”

“They’re a top side, they’ve signed really well, so for us, we’ve got to embrace the opportunities we’re given. This is a big game, something we’re excited about and we want to take it with both hands.”
