Warrington Wolves man explains why he penned new deal

Warrington Wolves have pulled off some superb business tonight tying down prop James Harrison to a longer term deal which will ensure the former Leeds Rhinos and Featherstone Rovers forward remains at the club until the end of 2025.

Speaking after the news, Harrison explained who convinced him to sign the new deal: “I’m buzzing to have signed a new deal and there’s no place I’d rather be.

“The way the club looked after me when I was injured was first class. Everything’s perfect for me here and I’m really enjoying it.

“Daryl Powell was a big reason for extending my contract. He trusts me, likes the way I play and gets the best out of me.

“It was a shock to get given the number 8 shirt for next season but a proud moment. At the end of the day though it’s just a number and I need to fight for my place each week. The pack is unbelievable this year, full of internationals and experience. Working with these players week-in-week-out will bring out the best of me.”

Powell himself is expecting big things from Harrison: “When we signed James I was 100% certain he would be a consistent Super League player.

“After his injury that became a bit tougher for him. However, his efforts for us last year showed how good he is going to be in the future and is why I feel this deal is a great one for the club.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how he grows over the coming years but I am super confident he will be an integral part of our success.”
