In the latest NRL.com Podcast, Zac Bailey is joined by Chris Kennedy and Brad Preston to unravel the newly-unveiled top-30 squads for all 16 NRL clubs for 2019.

The trio delve into a host of high-profile players who currently technically clubless, from Jarryd Hayne to Cameron Smith to Corey Oates.

The podcast analyses what makes the best list managers in the business, the Roosters, more successful at managing their rosters than the likes of Canterbury, Canberra and Manly, who were all paying former players in 2018.

They also look ahead to a possible feeding frenzy with a stack of high-profile talent off contract at the end of 2019 and now free to negotiate with any club – a list headed by the likes of Cameron Munster and Valentine Holmes.
