Morgan Gannon on whether he will one day consider NRL move

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.”
