The best is yet to come - that?s the verdict of Iestyn Harris on his return to rugby league.
Harris, 28, joined the Bulls midway through last season. He played for Great Britain in the Gillette Tri Nations, but insists he has not performed at his peak since his return to the 13-a-side code.
Speaking at the Bulls? media day, Harris said: "I?d not played it for three years so it was difficult to get to that standard.
"You have to play regularly over a period time to get to your best
"The game had advanced (during Harris? spell in rugby union) so to slip back into it was extremely difficult and at times I felt as though I was clinging on for my life.
"As the season went on, I started to get a little more comfortable but I had always earmarked the year after as hopefully my year."
Harris continued: "I?m in really good shape and I think I will hit the ground running. I?m as fit as anybody, completely up to scratch, and starting to feel sharp.
"Last year I felt as though I had a lot more to give but physically I just couldn?t give it. With a good pre-season under the belt, there are no excuses. I?m on a level playing field with everybody and I?m excited about it."
