Season Review: Tohu Harris

It was a true rollercoaster final season in Melbourne for Tohu Harris.

After going through the previous four seasons without missing a single game due to injury Harris was sidelined for a total of 13 weeks as a result of foot and shoulder troubles.

However the man affectionately known as Mr. Reliable, resumed his place in the side by Round 24 and from there he built towards playing his best football when it mattered most to have a crucial role in the Grand Final triumph.

Harris scored three tries in the final five games of the season and was one of Melbourne’s leading performers during the Finals series.

His Grand Final in particular was outstanding as he ran for 113 metres, one try assist, one line break and a game-high 43 tackles.

Harris averaged nearly 50 post contact metres per game and ran more than 117 metres each outing, the most of any Storm second rower.

After 117 games in purple the 25-year-old will return home to his native New Zealand, leaving a significant hole to fill on that left edge yet also with a Premiership ring and 2013 World Club Challenge victory under his belt.
