I really don’t want to see Lawrence leave. We have spent so long trying to get him back to form and now that he is starting to show promise in the back row he is going to leave.
If this is true:
1. All the best to him. Seriously. I hope he becomes an international level back rower and eventually comes back to the Tigers when we can afford him.
2. We actually sign some players to fill the gaps.
A real shame if true, but as Willow and others have said, he is earning more than he’s worth. I dare say we will still be ‘topping up’ his contract for the next 12 months, but at least will be saving some $$ from our cap.
He will be a very good second rower in my opinion.
All the best to him
