Rugby League: Harris hits back.

Under-Fire Warrington star Iestyn Harris has fired back at the club, who are taking legal action against him for an alleged breach of contract.

The Wolves have suspended Harris indefinitely and sent him a solicitor's letter after claims that he played in a soccer game before pulling out of a Super League game at Bradford with an injury.

But last night Harris's spokesman Tom Carroll fired back: "We shall be seeking our own legal advice this week.

"Iestyn steadfastly denies that he played in the game and he tells me he is able to back up his side of the story.

"Warrington are escalating the situation and it's just a pity that they had to resort to solicitor's letters when it could have been discussed over a table."

St Helens are still front-runners to sign Harris, but Wigan Warriors have made a substantial offer for the utility back with Leeds Rhinos still being linked to him.

Just days after releasing 21-year-old Australian forward Mick Hogue and losing Jeremy Donougher with a broken ankle, BRADFORD BULLS are seeking another forward Down Under.

They have had preliminary talks with South Queensland Crushers packman Jeff Wittenberg, who was targeted by Castleford Tigers before the season. He is now free to come to Britain after coming out of contract with the Australian Rugby League.

Two SHEFFIELD EAGLES stars, tourist centre Keith Senior and hooker Johnny Lawless, are seeking contract renegotiations.

And LEEDS RHINOS' teenage tourist forward Adsrian Morley is also anxious to secure his long-term future with an extended contract.
