Richie Myler will wear shirt number one for Leeds in 2023 for the first time

Leeds have announced their squad numbers for the 2023 season, with wholesale changes seeing 13 of their top 25 players have new numbers.

Richie Myler has been handed the number one shirt for the first time, having established himself as their first choice full-back in recent seasons, while new signing Nene Macdonald wears number four.

In announcing a new deal for Cameron Smith earlier this week, it was revealed he would wear 13, with Zane Tetevano switching to 10.

Jarrod O’Connor moves up to 14 following the departure of Brad Dwyer, and there are six further new signings in the top 25 – including Sam Lisone (15), Justin Sangare (17) and Luke Hooley (21).

Hooley steps up from the Championship where he has shone for Batley, and that path has been followed by Leigh’s Luis Roberts (24), who spent time on loan at Widnes last season.

Derrell Olpherts (16) and James McDonnell (19) arrive from Castleford and Wigan respectively.

Other recruits from the lower leagues include Toby Warren (27), who joined from York on a permanent basis following a loan spell, and Doncaster back-rower Leon Ruan (31), who trained with the Rhinos last term.
