Ashley Harrison
One-year extension

The Gold Coast Titans have secured another coup for the future with Queensland State of Origin forward Ashley Harrison today extending his contract with the club.

The ultra-consistent Harrison, who has played 69 games with the Jetstar Titans since joining the club in 2008, has agreed to extend his existing contract by a further year which will see him remain on the Gold Coast until the end of the 2013 season.

The 30-year-old has been an integral member of Queensland’s successful Origin team since 2008 and said he was eager to remain a key part of what the Jetstar Titans are building as the squad takes on a new look from next season.

Titans Coach John Cartwright said Harrison was the ultimate professional who led by example for the rest of the squad.

Managing Director Michael Searle said Harrison was a tough competitor who would help the balance of the playing roster as it takes on a different look over the next two seasons with the arrival of several fresh faces in Jamal Idris (aged 20), Beau Champion (24), Nate Myles (25) and Luke Douglas (24).
