It’s a massive drop in wages for Cartwright, who was an incredible talent at Penrith before being lured to the Gold Coast with a big cash deal valued at around $ 500,000 per season.
The 25-year-old has made 20 attempts in 112 games for the Panthers and Titans since his debut in 2014.
However, Cartwright managed to make only one attempt out of seven games for the Titans in 2020 before splitting from the club for family reasons to return to Sydney.
Cartwright is still young to a rugby league career but has been plagued by chronic knee injuries that have caused his shape to be inconsistent on the glitter streak.
Cartright scored just four tries for the Titans in 43 games before fearing his vaccination stance would ban him from the entire 2020 coronavirus-hit season.

The talented striker can cover the back row, fifth place and center but has struggled to achieve a consistent starting position in his rugby league career so far.
Parramatta decided to sign Cartwright despite reservations from assistant coach and Channel 9 commentator Andrew Johns.
“If I were a club I would be very careful,” Johns told Wide World of Sports in September.
“It’s up to Bryce. The problem with Bryce is that he’s got so much talent.
“Everyone can see how much talent they have. You are looking at the history of rugby league in the professional era for the past 20 years. Some players have so much talent that they just aren’t on duty because they don’t have to work that hard.
“You come out on the field and can do things that take your breath away, but you don’t have the tough advantage of working hard and working hard.”
