According to NRL.com reporter Dan Walsh, the veteran back-rower is said to be close to inking a three-year extension with the Mt. Smart-based club.
The financial figure attached to Harris’ proposed deal is yet to be made public, but as Tuivasa-Sheck is one of the league’s top earners, it would be safe to assume that the Kiwi forward’s bottom line will be boosted.
The extension will keep the Kiwi international in the shaky isles until the end of 2024, by which time he will be 32-years-old.
Currently 29, Harris is without doubt one of the older heads on the Warrior’s roster and after cutting his teeth with an impressive Melbourne Storm outfit prior to 2018, is said to be the frontrunner to replace Tuivasa-Sheck as captain.
With Tuivasa-Sheck, the 2018 Dally M Player of the Year, exiting his contract early in an effort to secure an All Blacks jersey, the Warriors and new coach Nathan Brown have a veritable war chest to attack the player market with.
Although set to depart at season’s end, Tuivasa-Sheck has been included in the Warriors’
squad to face the Gold Coast in Saturday’s trial match at Lismore.
