    As I'm sure the majority here are aware the NRL cut off for trades between clubs during the season has come and gone. I've been keeping track of contracts and trades for work and thought you all might be interested to see who was going where and who is locked into their clubs now that we are past June 30. I've left in some of the rumours and debunked a few that are floating around just for interest.

    BRISBANE BRONCOS
    Losses:
    Darren Lockyer (retirement), Shane Tronc (retirement), Denan Kemp (Rugby Union defection)

    Gains:
    Luke Capewell - 2012 (Gold Coast Titans), Petero Civoniceva - 2012 (Penrith Panthers)

    Resignings:
    Scott Anderson – 2013, Dane Copley – 2013, Dane Gagai – 2013, Justin Hodges – 2014, Dunamis Lui – 2013, Corey Parker - 2014, Sam Thaiday - 2015

    Off Contract:
    Rohan Ahern, Dane Carlaw

    Notes:
    With the exception of the retirements their entire top squad is contracted until at least the end of 2012. Sam Thaiday has been named Captain in 2012.

    CANBERRA RAIDERS

    Resignings:
    Shaun Fensom -2014, Bronson Harrison – 2014, Tom Learoyd-Lahrs – 2014, Joe Picker – 2013, David Shillington – 2015 (Shillington has a get out clause. He will be given early release to join any new Queensland franchise that joins the NRL if the comp is expanded. The clause does not allow Shillington to leave for any currently existing club.), Dane Tilse – 2014, Sam Williams – 2013, Jarrod Crocker - 2014

    Off Contract – Glenn Buttriss, Danny Galea, Drury Low, Josh Miller, David Milne

    Notes:

    Why does it have Manly Sea Eagles in brackets after Orford's name? There is no chance he will be at Manly next year.

    The manly marker for Orford is a rumour he has been offered a spot on the toyota cup's coaching staff, but there is nothing in stone and nothing officially announced

    It just says that he is off contract at the end of the year, not that he won't be resigned at during the year. Clubs can resign or extend a players contract at any time. The June 30 cut off just stops players negotiating with other teams during the final rounds of the competition.

    My personal opinion is that as much as I don't like him, T-rex looks like one of Des' favourites and I'm sure they will resign him.

    Just to clarify, off contract doesn't mean they are free agents being released by the club, just that their current contract expires at the end of this year.

    Thanks for the tip Eagles2win, I'll fix Jack Afamasaga now. It was my error, the club name is about 7 words long in French and I incorrectly assumed it was Rugby.

    Maybe Captain has been hacking old voicemails if he still thinks the trade deadline is in force ;)

    Good list though, some handy info.

    I think what he is referring to is mid season transfers. You can't change clubs this season after June 30 (ala Tagatese GC to Cronulla).

    I'm sick of hearing commentators praise Brisbane for their junior strength. Every team would be as strong, and not need to recruit, if they had the 2-million population that Brisbane has to choose from.

    It didn't say any player that any of the clubs are looking to re-sign. Why would they single T Rex out and say whether Manly want to keep him or not?
    The re-signed list was for players that had already been re-signed. There could be any number of players on the off contract list that the club still wants to re-sign.

    Sorry I did mean canlt do mid season transfers post June 30 like Anthony Mitchel, Cory Paterson, Sam Tagatese did this year. I didn't make myself clear, Dan is dead right, you can still negotiate with other teams for 2012 and beyond. Sorry for the confusion.

    I've also added the get out clause details for Shillington in the original post
