"I haven't thought about it [international football] in a long time," Harris told the Herald earlier this year. "I've just been focusing on club footy and trying to build something here.
"That has been all my focus and then any time I can get away from the club, it's just spending as much time with my family as I can and enjoying that."
That’s what I took from those passages."I want to make sure I am here and not missing time," explained Harris. "Because I want this club to be successful. Balancing international football [with club commitments] is hard to do. It's hard to spend as much time as possible when you are doing both."
Harris says Kiwis coach Michael Maguire understands his situation.
"I don't think he will call me," said Harris. "I think it is at the point where he is leaving me be. I wouldn't be expecting a call."
That’s why I actually feel he’s more suited to playing in the middle now- u really need a ball playing lock the way the game has gone.
