A vastly experienced forward who has achieved some of the game’s highest honours, Harrison was born in Auckland, NZ but schooled in England where his father Shane was a professional for both Salford and Swinton, earning a reputation as one of the game’s best tacklers.

Harrison played for the famous Folly Lane ARL club at junior level and came through the successful Wigan Warriors junior development scheme, making his first-team debut for the club in 2004.

He went on to make 238 appearances for the Warriors, winning the Grand Final in 2010 and the Challenge Cup in 2011 before achieving the notable Super League and Challenge Cup double in the club’s momentous 2013 campaign.After earning England international honours at youth level, he represented New Zealand in 2006 and then played for Samoa in the 2008 World Cup.

He was chosen to captain Samoa in the 2013 World Cup but had to withdraw from the team due to injury.

Harrison turned down the opportunity of a testimonial at Wigan to join Salford and in the past two seasons has been one of the mainstays of the Red Devils’ pack, making a total of 52 appearances for the club. He was appointed Joint Vice-Captain for the 2016 season.
