Harris could still switch to Union
Leeds rugby league star Iestyn Harris has left a crumb of comfort for Welsh coach Graham Henry by claiming that he might still switch codes in the future.
Harris' new contract, signed with Leeds earlier this week, ties him to the Super League side until 2003, when he will still only be 27.
However the Oldham born full back has claimed that union still interests him.
"In four years' time, when I have other options available to me, whether I stay at Leeds or move on to rugby union, I don't know. My grandad was involved with rugby union in Wales and it's something I've always wanted to do, and it took a little bit of thinking about over several weeks. "
"Union is a good game and I like to watch it, but I turned down a more lucrative deal from the WRU in favour of staying with league. It was a very tempting offer from rugby union - and I was reasonably close to signing - but at this stage of my career I just feel I want to play rugby league. "
