“Personally, I want to play the best rugby I ever have in 2021 but my overall aim is to do as much as I can to help the club push for promotion.”

Head Coach James Ford added: “I’m very excited to work with Morgan and help him kick on and fulfil his potential. I was very impressed with his maturity, intelligence and drive to be the best he can be. I’m confident he’ll fit right in and help us progress in the direction we’re aiming.
