Fly-half Will Harrison has extended his stay at Waratahs after signing a new three-year deal with the Super Rugby club.

Harrison joined Waratahs in 2020 and has started in all the fixtures for the side making 14 appearances scoring 126 points.

The 21-year-old captained the Australian Schoolboys and was part of the Australia Under 20 side that reached the final in the 2019 World Rugby U20 Championships.

“It’s [first season] been a really enjoyable experience for me personally, finding my feet in the squad, understanding my role and contributing to the direction we want to go as a team,” Harrison said to the official website of the club.

“I’ve had great support from my family, senior players and our management which has allowed me to focus on my own game and adapt to Super Rugby.

“To make my debut this year and become a Waratah has been a dream for me and I’m really thankful to the many people who have helped me get to this point.

“I’m really excited to have my future locked in here and continue that journey over the next few seasons – there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”

Waratahs are positioned third in the Super Rugby AU table with 19 points and their qualification to the play-off in the competition will depend on the result between Rebels and Force.
