Catching up with Liam Harris
I recently caught up with Hull KR starlet Liam Harris,20, who has spent most of the 2017 season with the Rover's partnership club, York City Knights. Everyone has been thoroughly impressed with his performances at York, especially his contribution to the Knights' historic win over Toronto Wolf Pack this season. Here's what Liam Discussed with Grassroots Rugby Media...
1. Where did you play your amateur rugby?
"I started playing at West Hull when I was 6, but I moved to Hull Wyke when I was 11"
2. You're known for being a skillful, dynamic play-maker. What skill do you think is important for young players to perfect?
"I wouldn't really say to perfect one skill is important. I think the most important thing for young kids is to have the correct attitude and to be coach-able. For me that would be far more important than skill!
3. You've experienced the transition from Amateur to Professional. What has life been like since signing as a professional Rugby Player, both At Hull KR and York?
"Life really hasn't really changed much for me since signing as a professional rugby player! I'm still chasing the dream the same way I was when I first started out!
4. Who would you say is the hardest working player you have played alongside?
"Probably Will Jubb, who I have grown up playing with and still play alongside him now! I've never met someone so dedicated!
5. If you have to name a team-mate who would love his own Reality TV show, who would it be?
"Thomas Minns! He would do well on Reality TV I think, always entertaining the boys around training!"
6. If you wasn't a Rugby Player what would you be pursuing as a career?
"If I wasn't a Rugby Player, I would like to think I would be doing something involved in property development as that's what I am aiming to do when I retire.
Thanks Liam, was great catching up with you!
