The Dolphins, a fourth Queensland-based side, will make their debut in 2023. It brings the NRL’s total squad count to 17 and marks the league’s first addition since the Gold Coast Titans in 2007.

NRL 2023 Season Preview:
With a long list of candidates hoping to be destroyed by Penrith in the championship game, the 2023 NRL season looks to be the most competitive in recent memory.
The competition for supremacy is so close that not even the Panthers have a shot.
Here’s why your team ought to give up on 2023 right away.
Penrith: The Mountain Men are currently in the second part of a rare three-peat, which hasn’t been done since the Fraser Administration. However, since every player on the roster is expected to sign with Canterbury by midwinter, it would be preferable for them to cash out their multi-year contract and wait for Ivan Cleary’s subsequent child.Melbourne: The Storm may have made the playoffs in 12 consecutive seasons, but that doesn’t make them immune to the coronavirus. Anything you give enough time to ignore will ultimately vanish.
Not only has Craig Bellamy lost a significant number of seasoned forwards, but rugby league has grown so weary of the Storm that we are now focused on the Panthers and monkey pox.
Roosters: Let’s face it; Trent Robinson’s tenure at the Roosters has been a train disaster, despite the three championships and numerous finals appearances. These people have been without a competition victory for three agonizing years, and I don’t think they will ever be able to stop robbing poor clubs long enough to break the dry spell.
Souths: Had to deal with an interrupted off-season due to the Latrell Mitchell altercation and assistant coach Sam Burgess’ ongoing strife, the latter of whom received more random checks than a Roosters recruit. Jason Demetriou’s team will compete in the playoffs, but as precedent shows, they are legally required to stop at the first round of the finals.
Parramatta: The Eels’ championship drought is the longest in the league, both statistically and medicinally speaking. Their most recent release was so long ago that it’s only on VHS and SD while PMSL is accessible. The Sex Party has a higher chance of gaining the upper house majority in the following election. even the Liberal Party, really.
Cowboys: Produced a breakthrough season in 2022 under Todd Payten, who unlocked Scott Drinkwater’s magic from behind a tenacious forward line. This team has all the qualities of a grand finalist, but because they are three hours distant due to Australia’s lousy flight industry, they would probably miss kickoff.
Cronulla: Under Craig Fitzgibbon and Nicho ‘Hutchence’ Hynes, the Sharks may have found themselves in an improbable championship matchup last year, but did anyone really think it was real? After all, this recurring failure already had a good time on their day off in 2016. Would you have predicted that Halley’s comet would make a second appearance a week later?
Because they are completely safe, Canberra’s Raiders are everyone’s second favorite squad. The only real threat on the team is Ricky Stuart. And only to reporters, officials, and anyone who wronged his boy in the under-12 division ten years ago.
Broncos: Do you remember the good old days in Brisbane when players were so naughty in the off-season that round one was called “kick-ons” instead of “kick-offs”? Thank goodness, these guys have transformed. They now spend their time harassing Kevin Walters on podcasts rather than turning rogue. If they end any higher than their Spotify ranking, they’ll be lucky.
Bulldogs: The player market was active once again this summer, with Phil Gould and company spouting outrageous sums of money in an effort to put the Trent Barrett era behind them. There is no reason why this team can’t move up as high as 12th with its exciting new roster and rookie coach Cameron Ciraldo in charge.
Manly: As life under new coach Anthony Seibold gets underway, waves of optimism are still coming from Manly, but I’m not believing it. The Sea Eagles without Des Hasler, to put it plainly, are like Simon without Garfunkel or a comb-over without loneliness. With all due regard to Seibold, Scott Penn and the players will be perplexed. Will he assign blame?
Tigers: Whenever optimism is raised by a promising preseason for the Tigers, keep in mind that the joint venture has been so terrible for the past 20 years that their 2005 premiership should be forgotten, much like the fat kids in Roald Dahl’s novels.
Warriors: The Kiwi team, known as the childless cat lady of rugby league, has now turned to luring unnamed associate coaches. With all due regard to Andrew Webster, he’ll have his work cut out for him just making sure the season doesn’t end unfinished and covered in cat litter.
Dragons: If you were the club’s lawyer, this would be another franticly busy off-season. This is a group whose only goal at the moment is making a club statement—not helping with police investigations.
Titans: Often referred to as Brisbane’s “little brother,” Seth Curry for their Steph, and Peter Stefanovic for their Karl. But despite the Broncos’ latest disappearances, they still make the bed and cover themselves in the sheets. unable to manage the pressure of the top eight, let alone a wooden spoon battle.
Newcastle: Don’t bother. Newcastle’s heyday is long past. There are no longer any Gidleys in storage, their home values have caught up to those in Sydney, and Daniel Johns is going through an odd electro-synth phase.
Dolphins: The newcomers begin their first season with no anticipation, no sense of place, and no chance. However, they do have half of the Storm’s retirees and a video that chronicles the club’s heyday: their life prior to playing football.
