Gold Coast Titans have parted ways with outside back Treymain Spry by mutual consent.
Spry, who was contracted to the Titans for the 2024 season, made his NRL debut in 2020, playing five games for the club.
He played 18 games for Tweed Seagulls in the Hostplus Cup in 2023.
The Roosters have locked in centre Billy Smith until the end of 2024 and utility Connor Watson until 2025 in a big boost for the club.
After returning from injury in 2023, 24-year-old Smith led a breakout season for the Roosters where he played 15 games and scored four tries at centre.
While a pre-season injury sidelined Connor Watson for the entire 2023 season, the 27-year-old is progressing well and set to commence pre-season training in late November.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson was pleased to retain the pair ahead of the 2024 season.
“It was terrific to see Billy’s growth throughout the 2023 season and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with him,” Robinson said.
“While we were all disappointed for Connor at the time of his injury, it says a lot about his character that he used the year to mentor some of the younger players in our squad and to work on areas of his own development both on and off the field.”
The Raiders have re-signed rising forward Hohepa Puru for 2024 with an option to extend into 2025.
Puru made his NRL debut in the final round of the 2023 season on the back of a strong year at NSW Cup level.
“This is incredibly well deserved for Pep, considering how much he impressed in his first year with the club – he came in on a training contract, dominated the NSW Cup competition and earned an NRL debut,” said Raiders recruitment manager Joel Carbone.
“He is an impressive young man and we’re very glad to have him here at the club.”
Melbourne trio Tepai Moeroa, Grant Anderson and Dean Ieremia have inked new one-year deals that will see them remain at AAMI Park until at least the end of 2024.
Moeroa joined the Storm in 2021 and has played 18 games for the club, including six in 2023. Since debuting with Parramatta in 2014 he has racked up 130 NRL matches.
Ieremia has played 22 games for Storm since debuting in Round 8, 2021 and claiming the club’s rookie of the year award.
He missed the 2023 season due to an ACL injury and will look to work his way back into Craig Bellamy’s best 17, while the versatile Anderson has played 10 games for the Storm since debuting in 2022.
The Bulldogs, meanwhile, have bolstered their roster with the addition of four new signings for the 2024 Telstra Premiership season.
