The ‘Mr.Reliable’ of the Cornish Pirates, Chris Morgan almost never has a poor game and as a result must be one of the most valuable team players to pull on the Pirate shirt in the past decade

Since signing in 2008  he has turned in a string of magnificent performances none more so than the B&I Final against Munster and the two Play Off finals with Worcester.

.The 2014/15 season was an especially proud one for Chris, as he not only skippered the club but was also honoured, along with Laurie McGlone, to play for the Barbarians against Heriot’s.

Injury restricted Chris to playing just five games in 2015/16. His overall tally stood at 190, when with better luck it should have been well past the 200 mark.

Chris went to the famous rugby school Millfield and whilst there was yet another who played for England Schoolboys.

He then went to University and forced his way into the Bristol Premiership team.

During 2005-06 he actually joined the Pirates on short term loan and did very well but was allowed to slip away.

He next popped up with Newbury starring against the Pirates and Mark Hewitt was pleased to sign him permanently in 2008. .
