MORRIS PENS DEAL WITH LIONS

12 July 2019

Ben Morris has signed a deal with the club for the remainder of the 2019 Betfred Championship season.

Swinton Lions are delighted to announce the signing of Wales international Ben Morris for the rest of the 2019 season.

Morris joined Rochdale Hornets ahead of the 2019 season but was recently released by the club to take a deal with the Lions.

The versatile player made his international debut before his first-team debut at club level, and was a part of the Wales 2017 Rugby League World Cup squad down under.

The 21-year-old has previously appeared for Oldham, Sheffield, Keighley, Workington and he featured in St Helens’ unbeaten Academy Championship side in 2016.

On the signing, Head Coach Stuart Littler commented: “I am delighted to announce the signing of Ben Morris following his recent release from Rochdale Hornets.

“Ben fits the category of being young and hungry to make a success of himself within the game.

“He is a current Welsh international who is well known within our playing group. He came through the St Helens club and offers us a lot of versatility moving forwards. Ben has interacted well within our tight squad and goes straight into contention within our playing roster.”

Morris could make his Lions debut this weekend as the squad travel to Bradford in the Betfred Championship.
