Harris shows promise in comeback game
Tohu Harris made a promising return from injury on the weekend for feeder side Sunshine Coast Falcons in the Intrust Super Cup.
It was Harris’s first game of 2017 after being sidelined since February with a stress fracture in his foot.
The Storm second rower was solid in his comeback game, running for 129 metres and making 26 tackles during 60 minutes of playing time.
He even found his was onto the try sheet as the Falcons recorded an emphatic 58-0 win over Tweed Heads.
“I can’t speak highly enough of what he did,” Falcons coach Craig Ingebrigtsen said.
“He could have easily come back for his first game in such a long time and just cruised around for 60 minutes but he was very, very good.
“He stuck to structures and wanted to do well. He really embraced the team and wanted to make sure he knew everyone in the team and them knew him.
“Also his work after the game with the kids was outstanding too. There were a lot of kids there getting photos and autographs off him and he just stayed out on the field and did it which was great.”
Harris was one of 10 Storm players to step out for the Falcons on the weekend, who now move into third spot on the Intrust Super Cup ladder ahead of this weekend’s Representative Round.
