    Ordinary player for someone of his size.

    Huge promise but eventually disappointing. Nickname was 'handbag'. His bio on wikipedia is bigger than mine :) but it gives some details:

    Did he play after '06? The wiki article lists his most recent season as 5 games with Wests in 2006.

    It also says he went to rugby in 07. That is what he did.

    Apparently a very handy Rugby player as well. He originally came from Rugby i believe.

    He looked to have massive potential but became just another plodder

    The only good game he played was against the broncos, he pulled a finger out and set up a few tries, cant remember what year though.

    Handbag came from the Waratahs, where he played centre. After his stint in League he returned to the Waratahs for a season or two and then ended up at the Western Force this year where he even played a game or two at fly half.

    It was Sam and Chad Randall that appeared on the footy show with their noses clearly out of joint when they were not offered new contracts.  I remember Fatty asking them what was happening for the next season, Sam turned to Chad and said, "Have you been offered a contract?, I have not heard any offers."  Chad's response, "Nuh."

    Harris had an ambitious girlfriend/fiance to go with his inflated sense of his own value, who wanted him to earn more money than Manly was prepared to pay.
    He was another 'successful' signing for Balmains' Magpies in 2006.

    No Shane. I was being kind and just didn't want to suggest his bio was poor. Anyone with a bio on wiki has one more than I have.
