Harrison Hansen signs two year

Wigan Warriors can today reveal they have signed 18 year old Kiwi Second Row Forward Harrison Hansen on a two year deal.

Harrison is the son of ex Salford professional Shane Hansen and is a product of the Folly Lane ARLFC.

Harrison has proved his qualities in the Under 21's this season and Coach Stuart Raper has been looking at him for a possible first grade position within the squad. Harrison has started training with the first team squad from this morning.

Coach Stuart Raper said,

"Harrison has impressed me this season in the Under 21's and he is another quality young player to come through the ranks joining the likes of Luke Robinson, Gareth Hock and Kevin Brown."

Rugby Executive Dean Bell commented,

"Harrison possess all the right qualities to become a regular first grade player, he has come through our scholarship system and has been outstanding in our Under 21 side this season. His signing reinforces the Wigan clubs ongoing commitment in developing and promoting our young players."

Wigan today also expressed their delight that Danny Orr had decided to join them from next season onwards.

Wigan Coach Stuart Raper said,

"Danny is a very good all round player who will be an asset to any side and I am pleased that he has chosen Wigan. He will blend very well into our line-up."

Raper continued,

"We acknowledge the fact that Danny has commitments to Castleford for the remainder of the season and we will fully respect that and do not expect to have any contact with Danny until the end of the season and of course we have to meet Castleford again in the Super League competition."
