As three futures remained uncertain, the Roosters announced five new departures..

Four players whose futures are still uncertain were among the five new departures the Sydney Roosters announced for their season-ending awards ceremony.

This indicates that in total, nine players from the Roosters’ 2023 team will depart before 2024.

Fletcher Baker of the Brisbane Broncos, Jaxson Paulo of the Manly Sea Eagles, Vuate Karawalevu of the Cronulla Sharks, Matthew Lodge of the Manly Sea Eagles, and Tuku Hau Tapuha of the Cronulla Sharks have all announced their departure from the team.
Coach Trent Robinson has also announced the departures of Ben Thomas, Thomas Deakin, Nathan Brown, Jake Turpin, and Drew Hutchison.

Deakin has been confirmed to play for Huddersfield Giants in the English Super League, but the other four players have not yet been announced.
The only player to find a new home during this time is Hutchison, a utility who spent five years at Bondi and has strong ties to the Canterbury Bulldogs, who are expected to relocate.
a number of signings in the upcoming weeks.

At the club’s awards ceremony on Wednesday, Robinson gave a speech in which he thanked a few of the departing players.

“It’s always very challenging at this time of year because there are players whose presence is uncertain because our sport involves negotiations.

“Some players won’t be there because they signed with other teams.
We anticipate Tom Deakin’s continued growth as he travels to Huddersfield, where he was born.
Nathan Brown.
I sincerely appreciate you being here.
Although Browny from Parramatta has had a difficult time, he is a good man and has proven this throughout the year.

a strong man.
We all agreed that he could play, and he did. He is a real pickpocket and a great defender, and he always steals the ball when he plays.

“Two players who have had a lot of experience in the NRL will round out my remarks.
Hutcho is a unique individual.
He played a variety of positions for us during an eight-week trial period before remaining for five years. He enhanced our group.
Fletch is also traveling to Brissy. He has a game this week for Norths, but because Fletch is from Musswelbrook, has played back row for 20 years, has scored many goals, and has worked hard to become the player he is today, it’s very difficult for him to lose.

Ben Thomas’ resignation was also made official later in the evening.

With three players still under contract, the Roosters have announced that they will welcome Spencer Leniu, Lewis Murphy, and Dominic Young to the team in 2024.
The quartet’s official re-signer will most likely be revealed to be Billy Smith.
Although the club hasn’t made any announcements, he claimed earlier this year that he had completed a new deal.

The only other pair still unemployed are Corey Allan and Connor Watson.

While Connor Watson, who hasn’t played a game all season, is said to have a number of clubs showing interest, Allan has recently been associated with a tri-color starter despite being a useful backup option on the outside in 2023.
