Morgan Gannon may only be 19 years old but he has made 38 first team appearances over the course of two seasons and is a player who is rated highly by everyone who watches him.
A player with limitless potential, tenacity and strength, the youngster even has the skills to play in the halves.
This has made many question whether he could one day have a crack in the NRL.
However, he is keen to stay at Leeds long term and repay their faith in him:
“Leeds is the club. I think the opportunities they have given me, I want to reward them and get them trophies. They have shown a lot of faith in me and developed me as a person and a player so it would be fitting to reward them with some trophies.”
Gannon has played Leeds’ first two friendlies in the halves as he tries out a new position.
Speaking on this, Gannon said: “It’s been good and a different challenge, with no collage this time and a positional change. I feel like I have grown as a player and person. It’s been good.”
In terms of whether he will fully transition into the role, Gannon said:
“I’m not too sure at the minute, I have only played two games in the halves and enjoyed both. Eventually I think my performances will make the decision and what Rohan sees me doing. For now I’m enjoying both and happy to play in both. The six is a different role, there are different challenges.
“Even if it doesn’t work out it will grow me as a player in terms of skills and my awareness as a backrower.”
