Player movements - Harrison

  • by NRL

Souths captain Ashley Harrison has signed a three-year N-R-L deal with the Sydney Roosters.

The Queensland Origin back-rower has rejected offers from the Rabbitohs and Wests Tigers to play under New South Wales coach Ricky Stuart from next year.

Harrison's manager Chris Orr says the 24-year-old believes his football will develop best under the guidance of Stuart. The Rabbitohs are chasing the signature of Bulldogs five-eighth Braith Anasta but he's expected to join Harrison at the Roosters.
