Wests Tigers officials have made the difficult decision to de-register forward Simon Dwyer.
It is a further blow to Dwyer’s dream of returning to football after suffering nerve damage to his shoulder in 2011.
Dwyer signed a $200,000-plus contract only months before the injury.
He is making slow progress and the Tigers have told him they will re-sign him if the injury comes good.
He will also work for the club in an off-field role.
