WARRINGTON Wolves Prop James Harrison says he is “buzzing” after signing a new contract extension until the end of the 2026 season with a club option for a further year.
The 27-year-old former Featherstone Rovers prop joined Warrington Wolves for the 2022 campaign and has since made a big impact and become an ever-present in the side. Harrison has made 32 appearances to date for the Wire, scoring five tries.
The no.8’s impressive performances earned his first international call-up last year in England’s mid-season win over France.
James Harrison, the son of former Great Britain international Karl Harrison, will be proudly sponsored by No More Kennels Luxury Dog Hotel.
Commenting on the new deal, James Harrison said: “I’m buzzing to have signed a new deal and it was a no-brainer for me.
“I love it here and love how the club have treated me over the past couple of years.
“I’ve had a really good pre-season. I feel fit, fresh and I’m ready now for the new season. Sam [Burgess] was my hero growing up and it’s been really exciting to work with him. It’s the first time I’ve been coached by someone who played in my position which has been great for advice and improving my game.
“I got the England call-up last year and that’s a big aim of mine this year to get back into the international squad.”
Warrington Wolves Head Coach Sam Burgess added: “Jimmy epitomises what a Wire player looks like. He’s tough, honest and most of all a great guy.
“It’s another great signing for us and secures our middle unit moving forward.”
OHHH JIMMY JIMMY! ✍️
