Harrison has made 14 appearances for the Robins since making his first team debut in 2019 but has not played for Tony Smith’s side since last year. He has spent the bulk of this season on loan at Newcastle Thunder.

An easy decision

On his move to Dewsbury, Harrison said: “I am really buzzing to have signed with the club for next year. I can’t wait to get stuck in to pre-season and get ready for a big year both for me personally and for the team.

“Once I had the chance to sit down with Lee Greenwood (coach) and he expressed the vision he saw for myself and also the club it was an easy decision to make.

“Dewsbury is a great club and with a good pre-season under our belts I can see us having a very positive year in 2022.

“I had a brief spell with the Rams back when I was 19. Now I’m 22, I believe I have matured and become a better player. So I hope I can bring a lot more to the team than I did back then.

“There are also a lot of new faces around the squad from when I was last here. I’m looking forward to meeting them all.

“It is going to be a big change for me and one which I can not wait for. I am looking forward to playing some regular rugby and I want to be playing at my best and hopefully we can get into the top half of the table come the end of the year.”
