The Cornish Pirates confirmed in May 2023 that for a second year running Morgan had signed a one-year contract with the club. He had featured in 20 matches, adding to the two appearances made when having been registered for the club for the final two games of the 2021/22 campaign. Also, in the process, he scored an impressive total of 10 tries in the 2022/23 season.

 

Born in Ross-on-Wye, Morgan first played rugby for Ledbury youth team and then for Hereford. Educated at John Kyle High School and Hartpury College before attending Cardiff Metropolitan University (Cardiff Met), he has played age grade rugby for Wales, including the under 18s team, and prior to his arrival at the Cornish Pirates had been part of the BUCS Super Rugby team at Cardiff Met, playing also in the Welsh Championship. He has also in the past played for both Worcester and Gloucester Academy, as well as the Hartpury College AASE squad.

 

Morgan has always appreciated the support given him by his family, whilst Ian Gardner, the forwards coach at Cardiff Met, provided much appreciated guidance.

 

Besides rugby, Morgan played county cricket at school for Herefordshire, plus he enjoys watching Formula 1 racing. Keen also to cook, mussels and calamari form his favourite dish!
