Any uncertainty about his future can now end, after QLD, Australian and NRL All-Stars representative back-rower Ashley Harrison re-signed with the club for a further 2 years, a deal that will see him at the club until the end of 2015 season.
Whilst he was contracted to the club for the current season, the decision was made to put pen to paper, giving Harrison the chance to join the illustrious 300-club over the next few seasons.
For Harrison, it was the ability of the club to move forward, as well as his condition, that convinced him to sign on for a couple more years at the club.
â€œAs long as I feel I can keep contributing to the club, Iâ€™m happy to keep playing,” said Harrison.
â€œI have got through the pre-season really well coming back from groin surgery and my body is feeling great.
â€œIâ€™m really excited by the direction of the club, so Iâ€™m more than happy to commit to the Titans for a further two years.”
With the potential threat of Harrison departing, Titans CEO David May is thrilled that the representative back-rower has re-signed with the club.
â€œWeâ€™re obviously delighted that â€˜Harroâ€™ has re-signed with the club. Iâ€™m one of his biggest fans â€“ the way he trains, plays and leads by example, heâ€™s an absolute professional,” said May.
â€œNo doubt heâ€™ll be one of the first people on Mal Meningaâ€™s team sheet when it comes to State of Origin, so we are very happy to have a player of his professionalism decide to play out his last few seasons with the club.”
At 31, Harrison is a veteran of the club, with coach John Cartwright of the belief that Harrison is one of the club’s true leaders.
â€œHarro is still in career best form and heâ€™s one of the most professional players we have at the club,” said Cartwright.
â€œWeâ€™re expecting him to again be involved in State of Origin this year. Heâ€™s been here since 2008 and has turned into one of the true leaders at the club.”
