Warrington Wolves man left “shocked” by squad number and makes bold statement about 2023 squad

James Harrison is a player with huge potential and isn’t given the credit he deserves.

He first caught the eye at Leeds Rhinos on loan in 2020 prior to joining the Wolves ahead of 2022.

His work ethic makes him the perfect modern prop and he is finally getting the recognition he deserves having been given the number eight shirt for next year.

He revealed that he was shocked by this whilst he praised the Warrington pack going into the new year:

“It was a shock to get the number eight 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 the best of me.”

It was today revealed that he had signed a new deal at the club to keep him at the Halliwell Jones until the end of 2025.

On this he said:

“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.”
