Witt commits to Crusaders

Crusaders half-back Michael Witt has committed his future to the club, signing a new three-year deal at the Racecourse Ground.

Witt’s retention follows the announced signing of back-rower Shannon McPherson from NRL side South Sydney Rabbitohs earlier this week.

The former Parramatta man has scored 163 points in 36 appearances for the Welsh club since arriving last term.

He said: “I am very happy to have signed a 3 year extension and to have committed my future to the Crusaders.

“I can see the club is intent on building something special here and I have every confidence we can do that with the players and coaches we have and the direction we are moving in.

“Above all I want this to be a club with a winning mentality, and I hope that in my time here we can achieve great success as a club.”

Witt is believed to have turned down offers from both rugby league and rugby union to remain in Wrexham, having arrived at the club from New Zealand-based union side Otago.

Crusaders coach Iestyn Harris said: “Michael has become an integral part of the Crusaders team since he joined and I am delighted that he has decided to remain with us for the next three years.”
