The Bryce Cartwright era may already be over on the Gold Coast (did it ever really begin?).
According to 7Sport reporter Chris Garry on twitter, Cartwright is “poised to join Manly Sea Eagles”, with the Sea Eagles having made a formal approach, and the Titans reportedly happy for him to go there.
Cartwright had been languishing in Queensland Cup due to poor defense (surely they knew what they were buying at the time), and is currently out with a broken hand; but prior to his arrival on the Gold Coast was perceived as one of the league’s most explosive attacking weapons.
The Sea Eagles will be hoping they can get the best out of him, and as long as he’s not forced to defend on the edges, he may turn out to be a bargain. Only time will tell.
Cartwright has played 80 first grade games for the Titans and Panthers.
