If everyone in the team played with his heart we would be in a far better position than we are now, well done Rowdy.

Say what you will about Chris Lawrence but, he's the only one who seems to feel loyal to the club. He's also putting in 100% every week. I'm hoping that Ivan can get the best football out of Rowdy.

I remember when he came in as a high schooler. Will always have a smile on face when think of Lawrence he is tough, loyal and has integrity. Thank you Chris

Mate he really had no choice but to be loyal as he wouldn't have got any interest from other clubs. Dislocated hip ruined his career simple.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Easy to be loyal on $650000 p.a.
I'm pretty sure he took a pay cut for his current contract.... Think around 300K. Which is closer to the mark these days.
Correct reduced it to $300k but extended contract to 3 years '17 18 &19.

I seen Rowdy at Campbelltown at that Simon Dwyer benefit game he was signing autographs and taking selfies with all the kid a real classy guy.
Pity the hip injury basically ruined his career.
Maybe a couple years in EPL then back to WT in an ambassador role, much better option than RF.

Well done to him, he's had some godawful injuries and he still gives it his all. Not the player he was but he never dogs it and always puts in for those around him.

He turned down massive dollars from the Dogs right before the hip injury. Safe to say he's loyal.

Its sad that in a thread that's meant to be something positive about one of the club's longest serving players that his detractors still need to get their digs in.

Well done Rowdy. Club legend.

I know, I'm just referring to the way he talks about the club and the way he presents the club. Especially in interviews and press conferences. Dene Halatau was the same way. The always say how much they love the club and grateful they are to be given the opportunity to play at the club.

It is 100 to many however he does his best every week.

He is an honest at they come in terms of effort.

His body is just a train wreak.
Sometimes Eddie I think you really misplace your words.

Say what you want about Lawrence, about his talent or lack of it, that's an opinion. I personally think he is definitely first-grade quality, he's not one of the better second rowers but that's true of most forwards in the comp, they can't all be superstars.

And with his heavily reduced / drawn out contract, he's not on much money. It's not his fault he had such a good deal previously, he was arguably one of the best centre prospects Tigers have ever had, and I think it's a credit to him that he reinvented his game such that he's still a competitive forward. Luke Lewis is one of the few footballers I can think of who successfully made that transition, and he's not just a rare talent, he moved to the backrow not so long into his career.

But about his body being a train wreck - have you seen Lawrence? He's pretty damned fit and strong looking for a train wreck. In the last 3 years he's played 21, 19 and 22 games, which is decently consistent for a forward. As a comparison, Sauaso Sue played 18, 23 and 21 games in that same period.

He's not a train wreck, you speak out of turn, he's just not the physical powerhouse he was 7 years ago. Age comes for us all, as they say.

Could have been anything before his injury.

Congrats to him on fighting to game 200.

Congratulations Chris on your 200 !.

Would have loved to see you as the club captain.

Far more resolve and intelligence than Woods.

Did you same the same thing for other long serving players?
