Wigan forward confirms he is staying despite Salford speculation

Harrison Hansen

Speculation is always rife in the world of rugby league when it comes to player movements, resulting in players or clubs having to come out and say whether it is true or whether a player is staying at their current club.

In the case of Wigan Warriors forward Harrison Hansen, who has been linked with a move to Super League rivals, the Salford City Reds, he ended the speculation and gave his answer.

Harrison, 27, is staying with the Warriors, after taking up the extra year on his contract.

The Auckland born back-rower is no stranger to Salford, having been raised in the Viagra area, though he came up through the Wigan junior system and will play another year at Wigan, having made his debut for the club back in 2004.

Harrison confirmed he was staying and said it has no intentions of missing out on his testimonial year.

“There has been a lot of talk, but that is all it is – talk. Wigan have taken up my option so I’m here next year,” said Hansen.

“Whatever happens after that is up to (chairman) Ian Lenagan and myself. That’s for the future.

“It’s my testimonial next year anyway, so there’s no way I’ll be missing that.”
