Warrington Wolves have announced the signing of Featherstone Rovers forward James Harrison for the 2022 season.
Harrison has been a key player for the Rovers in 2021, and helped them to 1895 Cup Final glory at Wembley. He scored a try in their 41-34 win over York City Knights in the capital.
A number of Super League clubs were said to be interested in Harrison, and Warrington have won the race for his signature.
Reacting to the news, Harrison said: “I’m buzzing to be joining Warrington next season. I’ve always wanted to be a Super League player so to get the chance at a Club like Warrington is a dream come true.
“I definitely feel I’m ready and the time is right to make this next step up in my career. I consider myself a real hard-working player and I back myself to play big minutes.
“I can’t wait to meet the fans. It’s a massive stadium at the Halliwell Jones and I’m looking forward to playing there next season. I’m really excited for what’s to come.”
CEO Karl Fitzpatrick added: “In recruiting James I know that we’ve added one of the Championship’s most consistent and standout forwards to our pack for next season onwards.
“He’s overcome adversity to get to where he is in his career and deserves his opportunity now to showcase what he can do in Super League.
“He has all the right attributes to bolster our forwards options and will add value to our squad for 2022.”
