Reports have indicated that Tigers second-rower Chris Lawrence is likely to play on for another year with the club.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the 240-game veteran, who turned 31 earlier this month, wants to play in 2020, but won't look to extend his career at another club.

At this stage, the stalwart is believed to be close to reaching terms on a contract extension with the only NRL club he's ever known.

Lawrence, who played every game after Wests' round 12 bye this year, is 17 appearances away from surpassing Robbie Farah's club games record.
