Warrington seal new deals with international pair
Saturday 16 October 2010
Warrington and England's two Bens, Westwood and Harrison, have agreed extended contracts at the club that has made them international forwards.
Both are in New Zealand for the Four Nations. Westwood, 29, became a Test regular under the former England coach, Tony Smith, now his coach at the Wolves. His new deal will keep him there at least until the end of the 2013 season.
Harrison, seven years younger, is on the fringes of the full international squad, having played for England against Cumbria before the squad flew out. His two-year extension takes him up to the end of the 2014 campaign.
The Cumbrian was not expected to be involved in the warm-up game against the New Zealand Maori in Auckland early this morning, after the England coach, Steve McNamara, failed to get the game played under unlimited substitute rules. But Westwood remains in the coach's plans for the other games in the Antipodes.
