Official: Another exit from Roosters confirmed with career in balance

With his career in doubt, the forward’s departure from the Roosters was confirmed.

He left the Roosters last week, it was confirmed.

Nathan Brown, a forward who is leaving the Sydney Roosters, has admitted that there is no deal on the table for 2024, leaving his NRL future in limbo.

Early in the 2023 season, Brown, a former two-time State of Origin player, made the unexpected switch from the Parramatta Eels to the Roosters.

After learning that his services at the Eels were no longer needed in the middle of the 2022 season and that he would not be retained after the contract’s expiration in 2023, he received the news.

His switch to the Roosters came after he had been called up to the Eels team for the futile attempt in the 2022 grand final, and he ultimately played just ten first-grade games this year.
He made his club debut for the Roosters in Round 12 before being sent off during what would be his final game for the club in Round 23 for a high shot.

Coach Trent Robinson announced Brown’s departure at the end of 2023 during the club’s most recent end-of-year presentation night.

Nathan Brown.
Thank you so much for coming over, I really appreciate it.
Coming from Parramatta has been difficult for Browny, but this year he has proven that he is a good man, according to Robinson.

Now that his NRL career is in doubt, News Corp is reporting that he has no new deal on the table and is instead looking for an opportunity.

The 30-year-old Fairfield native was known as one of the toughest players in the NRL during his prime at the Eels, so the news might come as a surprise.

But lately, he’s been a shell of his former self, and as the NRL’s pace quickened in response to the sudden success of players like Isaah Yeo, Patrick Carrigan, and Cameron Murray, he was left behind.

Though it’s unknown whether any NRL teams will make a move for the stubborn Brown, it seems likely that a team will sign him for a pittance given how few players are still available for the final roster spots in 2024 and how much room most clubs still have to maneuver.

Since making his debut in 2013 with the Wests Tigers, Brown has participated in 148 NRL contests.
