St George Illawarra have announced their first major signing for 2023 – a major boost for the club as they prepare for the departure of a number of stars. All current NRLW player movements inside.

St George Illawarra have landed their first major signing for 2023, luring Premier League winner Bobbi Law to the club from Newcastle.

The 25-year-old is the first top-flight player to make an official move after the NRLW contract window opened on Wednesday morning.

Dragons coach Jamie Soward announced on Twitter that he would be naming confirmed players on his roster Wednesday, beginning with a video of Law signing the NRLW deal.

“This is my first NRLW signing for 2023, pumped about this, she’s a Premiership winner and a proud member of the Indigenous All Stars for the last few years, she’s signed coming to the Dragons Bobbi Law,” he said .

It comes just hours into the start of the contract after lengthy negotiations between the RLPA and the NRL that have dragged on for many months.

The addition of Law is a boost for the Dragons, who are believed to lose a handful of stars including Emma Tonegato, Shaylee Bent, Keely Davis, Holli Wheeler and Taliah Fuimaono.

They are understood to have also reached a verbal agreement with Dally M winner Raecene McGregor, which is likely to be finalized in the coming days.

Eels forward Kennedy Cherrington is expected to sign a three-year deal to remain at Parramatta.

The 24-year-old’s management are understood to have been in intensive talks with the Eels, with a deal to be announced shortly.

Cherrington was a key member of the Eels grand finals team last season and is a key signing for the club as center forward Simaima Taufa is expected to join the Canberra Raiders for their debut NRLW season.

She was unveiled on Wednesday as an ambassador for Goanna Academy, the Greg Inglis preventive mental health organization.

NRLW star Millie Boyle made her first appearance in Roosters colors on Monday night.

The clearest indication that she will be joining the Sydney Roosters NRLW team was when Boyle played for the Central Coast Roosters against Newcastle.

Boyle, who led the Knights to an NRLW Premiership, faced the Knights in the Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership.

The Roosters won the duel in Cessnock with 20:10.

News Corp reported last month that the Roosters were close to signing Dally M medalist Boyle, who guided the Knights to their maiden NRLW title last year in their first season at the club after moving from Brisbane.

In another hint of big moves in the player market, Boyle’s Monday night teammate was Broncos five-eighth Tarryn Aitken, who is also believed to be moving to Bondi.

The 23-year-old Queensland star has been with Brisbane for three years but is planning a move to the Roosters for the upcoming 2023 NRLW season.

She is expected to take over at halftime from Zehara Temara, who is rumored to remain in her home state of Queensland with either the Titans, Broncos or Cowboys this season.

The loss of Temara adds to what is expected to be a big exit from the Roosters, with the game’s top player and star halfback Raecene McGregor on the verge of a deal with the Dragons.

A number of player transfers are expected to drop in the coming weeks as the NRLW signing window nears opening.

It has previously been reported that Dragons’ Emma Tonegato will join the new Cronulla franchise, along with speedster Jada Taylor (of the Roosters), who has already joined the club.

Simaima Taufa is also expected to join Canberra from Parramatta in a bid to give her debut side a major boost.
