Dally M Player Of The Year
1980

Biography

19-year-old Wauchope product came to Easts with Ian Schubert in 1975 but was relegated to the Roosters' junior league (Paddington Colts) because of the 13 import rule. A talented centre/five-eighth, Laurie captained Easts' President's Cup before being finally graded in 1976. With Souths in 1980, he was rewarded after a tremendous season with his naming as the inaugural 'Dally M' Player of the Year. After returning to Easts where he played for two more seasons, he saw out the remainder of his career back at Wauchope.
