JUNIOR Kangaroos prop Blake Lawrie says the decision to re-commit to his junior club for two more seasons was an easy one to make, confident the club is very much on the up.
The Dapto junior made his debut for the Junior Roos as part of the representative weekend, a match that ended in a big win for the Aussies. He joins an impressive stable of young forwards at the club with the likes of Hame Sele, Jacob Host and Luciano Leilua all locked down on multi-year deals.
“It’s good that we’re all locked up at the moment. It’s a good platform for us to keep building on in years to come,” Lawrie said.
They’ll also get the chance to learn from what has emerged as one of the most dominant forward packs in the NRL.
“It’s part of the reason I re-signed, the pack and how well they’re playing,” Lawrie said.
“It’s good for me as a young front-rower to learn off and hopefully I can keep learning off all of them and work my way in there.”
