Lawton to depart Titans

The TFH Gold Cost Titans can today announce the release of Karl Lawton, effective immediately.

Lawton has been given an opportunity at the New Zealand Warriors on a three-year contract (including 2018) and believes it is the best opportunity for him to secure a regular NRL spot.

“It’s disappointing to see Karl depart the club as he is a local product but we couldn’t stand in the way of an opportunity for him to play regular first grade,” Head Coach Garth Brennan said.

“Karl is a likable guy amongst the group and I know a lot of us will miss him. We wish him all the best for the future at his new club.”
