Lawrence signs five year deal

Wests Tigers have retained winger Chris Lawrence for a further five years, after the Australia international agreed a new deal.

The deal will see Lawrence, 22, remain with the club until the end of the 2016 season.

A former Campbelltown junior, Lawrence has scored 53 tries since making his NRL debut in 2006, just a year after joining the club.

Lawrence said he was really pleased to secure his future at the Club.

“I’m a Campbelltown junior and have come through the Club’s development program so it’s perfect for me that I’ll be here for this length of time. We have such a talented squad here at the moment so it’s exciting to be a part of that,” he said.

Wests Tigers CEO Stephen Humphreys said that securing the long term services of Lawrence is an important milestone for the Club.

“Chris thoroughly deserves this contract and is a key component to the squad moving forward. He’s only 22 but he’s already tasted representative football and played close to 100 first grade games. He is a player of great class and character and he will only continue to develop and improve his game” Humphreys said.
