Penrith Panthers can confirm Bryce Cartwright has been released from the remainder of his contract with the club to pursue another opportunity in the NRL.
The 23-year-old played 69 games and scored 16 tries for the Panthers after making his NRL debut in 2014.
“It’s obviously disappointing to be releasing a player like Bryce Cartwright, however, we appreciate his desire to seek such a change,” Panthers Executive General Manager Phil Gould AM said.
“We hope that this move proves successful for Bryce, both on and off the field.
“Hopefully some time in the future he finds his way back to Panthers.
“We wish Bryce and his young family all the very best.”
