Harris in talks over Celtic move


Iestyn Harris has revealed he is in talks with Celtic Crusaders about a possible move to the Welsh club.

The dual-code international, currently player-coach at Featherstone, could be set to move to Newport to form a dream team with Brian Noble.

Wigan coach Noble, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has been heavily linked with a move to the Crusaders to replace John Dixon, who left the club following Sunday’s defeat against Castleford in the final game of the season.

Harris, 33, still has a year left on his contract at the Chris Moyles Stadium, but seems keen to move to Wales where a link-up with Noble, who coached the stand off at Bradford, looks increasingly probable.

The former Warrington, Leeds and Bradford star said: “I’m speaking to people at the moment to maybe make that a possibility.

“It is something that would certainly interest me and if I get the opportunity then fantastic.”

“The Welsh connection will be fantastic but you must take opportunities as and when they come along, especially when you are starting your coaching career.

“If that comes along at the Crusaders then it would be great to grab that to build and improve my coaching career. If I can be part of the team that takes them on over the next two years into the next franchise then that is something that is of real interest to me.”
