Top 10 NRL Player Movements for 2018

It has been a massive off-season with regards to player movements for the upcoming 2018 season. We rank our top 10 players that have joined a new NRL club for next season.

10 Dane Gagai (South Sydney Rabbitohs) 


Gagai, 26, has played 124 NRL games for the Newcastle Knights and Brisbane Broncos since making his first grade debut for the Broncos against the Cowboys in 2011, and he will join the Rabbitohs on a four-year contract beginning next season.

Gagai has played in five State of Origin games for Queensland between 2015 and 2017 as well as representing the Indigenous All Stars on three occasions between 2015 and 2017.

Gagai is regarded as one of the strike outside backs in the NRL competition; comfortable playing at centre, wing or fullback and is a massive coup for the Rabbitohs for the 2018 season.

9 James Maloney (Penrith Panthers)


The 31-year-old Origin playmaker has played 203 NRL games for four separate clubs before joining Penrith.

Maloney has won premierships at the Roosters and the Sharks, and has represented both NSW and Australia. Maloney will link up with exciting young half, Nathan Cleary, to form one of the deadliest duo’s in the competition in 2018.

8  Matt Moylan (Cronulla Sharks)

Moylan’s release from Penrith comes a year after the Panthers trumpeted his five-year contract extension and almost two years after appointing him captain. Moylan joins the sharks replacing James Maloney to team up with Chad Townsend in what should be an interesting combination.
