So looking on web sites we have the following - the numbers are a simple count of those listed. 
I have not double checked they are up to date with all signings departures.
It does not count academy players.

Club                           Senior Squad   Preseason matches
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ampthill        48 players
Bedford         36 players Cambridge
Cornish Pirates 39 players Redruth/Cambourne
Coventry        40 players Leinster, Blackheath, Moseley , Cambridge
Doncaster       30 players Rams 
Ealing          26 players Stortford Rosslyn Park
Hartpury        43 players Worcester Cinderford  
Jersey          22 players Old Elthamians Scarlets 
London Scottish 29 players Edinburgh
Newcastle       47 players 
Nottingham      37 players 
Leeds            0 players

Doncaster have 32 in the squad, the two you couldn't count because they don't appear on the website yet are Will Holling and Sam Pocklington both players have signed pro terms from the academy

Nottingham have a squad of 32 + as last year a group of NTU students that hasn't been announced yet

I suspect that you have used the players page on the Bedford Blues website.  These are last season's players. So far I believe a figure of 25 would be nearer the mark for the coming season.

The Jersey Reds' squad stands at 23 retained players + 11 confirmed new signings; see full list when the most recent signing was announced a few weeks ago - https://www.jerseyreds.je/news_article/new-signing-josh-joins-jersey/" rel="nofollow - LINK

There may be one or two more to add.

The player profiles haven't yet been added because the volunteer responsible has had some off-season down-time and hasn't got to them yet - they will be added before the end of July.

London Scottish squad size is currently 32, with pre-season friendlies against Cardiff Blues, Chinnor and Edinburgh in that order.

This says nothing about how ready the clubs are for next season. All it shows is different approaches to web sites.

I know but one would hope that any club with half a claim ot being semi-professional would keep their web site vaguely up to date.

Nottingham website is seldom updated much before the season starts.
To be honest I would rather we allocated resources to getting the team ready to compete in our predominantly professional league over updating the website for folk like me who check it everyday just in case...

Depends on how you want to spend your money everyone has a choice.

IMO a good up to date web site is essential.

Any prospective sponsor is likely to look at this as an extension of advertising of their business, if it isn't kept up to date then people stop looking at it.

Sadly many clubs fail to even get the basics, results updated on a weekly basis.

Blues have announced 26 but 1 player did not turn up and will not be doing so.  We have a few on trial at the moment which are likely to be given contracts.

If you are a small sponsor you don't really care, it is more like giving money to charity, as it is the done thing in the town (certainly Bedford anyway). 
 
If you are a major sponsor you will be in the know before the fans are.

Unless of course you are Guiness sponsoring London Irish. Wink

Still think any sponsor would like to see they are backing an well organised club - websites not up to date don't get looked at and are an indicator of how well they are organised

Coventry seem to have added a fixture against Leicester Lions - how many pre-season fixtures can you play.

It'll be a fairly low-rent Cov side I expect.
As will those following (but with more firsts in the mix), with a higher percentage again vs Cambridge.

The match v Cambridge is the highlight of the season isn't it.
Rowland and the boys cannot lose against the old club.
And we are going to be up for it.
