Sea Eagles forward Brenton Lawrence is reportedly on his way out of Brookvale, and the next question is: will he be leaving via the tube, or the bus?
According to Fox Sports, the off-contract big man attracted the attention of Knights officials, but his desire for a two-year deal put them off, leaving the Super League as his best bet. Although, the Tigers are “considering making an offer“.
Despite being held back by injuries in recent years, Lawrence has returned to form in 2017 as one of the Sea Eagles’ best, making it somewhat surprising that the club is happy to let him go.
The impending departure of Nate Myles may yet change their minds, but if not, we certainly think he’d look good alongside Ben Matulino and Russell Packer.
Lawrence has played 92 first grade games for the Sea Eagles and Titans.
He’s #35 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
