The club normally waits until the end of trade week before announcing the delistings. The theory is that other clubs would be more willing to trade for our dead wood if they didn't know they could pick them up for free as Delisted FA. Whether there's any validity to that theory is another matter.
At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter when the delistings are announced - as long as it happens by the relevant List Lodgement dates.
A lot will depend on who we cut, I believe. Lose some deadwood, and Batters/Kelly could be promoted. If not, they can easily remain on the RL for another year, with an instant upgrade spot available with Otten's LTI.
Edit: you meant comp wide. there are a couple... give me 2.
