Wests Tigers have today confirmed the signing of Daine Laurie, effective immediately, after the talented youngster was granted a release from the final year of his contract with the Penrith Panthers.
Having originally signed a two-year deal with the club for the 2022 and 2023 NRL seasons, Laurie will now link up with his new club for the start of the 2021 NRL season.
In addition to the signing of Laurie, Wests Tigers have confirmed that centre Paul Momirovski has been released from the final year of his contract to join the Penrith Panthers.
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe welcomed Laurie to the club and thanked Paul for his service.
“We were extremely pleased to secure Daine from the start of the 2022 season and to have him join us earlier than expected is a great boost,” Pascoe said.
“Daine is clearly an exceptional talent and we’re very excited to see him take the next steps in his rugby league career in a Wests Tigers jersey.
“I’d also like to thank Paul for his efforts since joining Wests Tigers in 2019,” Pascoe said. “Paul is a fine young man who has endeavoured to improve both himself and the team since arriving to the club and we wish him nothing but the best for the future.
Laurie will join his new Wests Tigers teammates as the squad travels to Tamworth today as part of its 2021 preparations.
