Blake Lawrie is not a superstar but he doesn’t have to be, for his goes about his business and that is why the St George Illawarra Dragons have re-signed him.
Lawrie’s new deal runs until the end of the 2026 and for the Dapto Canaries junior, he could not see himself playing anywhere else.
“It’s a great outcome for myself and my family,” Lawrie said.
“We’re building something nice this year and there was no other choice in my mind but to stay at the Dragons.
“I grew up in the area, this means a lot to me so it’s very exciting news and there’s exciting times ahead.”
Dragons General Manager of Football Ben Haran said the club was pleased to be able to keep Lawrie around long-term.
“Blake’s a local junior who’s been with us since 2012,” Haran said.
“He’s a great example of hard work and commitment. He really demonstrates what we want to see in a Dragon.
“We feel the next three years ahead of him will be his best years yet and we’re excited to see where he’ll go and where he can take the club.”
