D.O.B 6, May 1995

Joined Club 17/05/2015

Mike originally joined the Lions on trialist forms from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2015, but impressed enough to quickly earn his first professional contract. A former England student international, Mike is now a well established and feared Championship outside-back. After winning the club’s Young Player of the Year award in 2017, he followed this up by landing the Lions’ prestigious Man of Steel award in 2018. He was Swinton’s leading try scorer in 2017, and second top scorer in 2018. Mike’s performances in 2018 were consistently solid, and prompted a call-up to the Wales squad for the 2018 European Championship for whom he qualifies by heritage. In the 2019 season he scored an impressive 22 tries in 27 appearances to finish as third top try scorer in the Championship. This included a four-try haul against Rochdale Hornets at Heywood Road, and two more against champions Toronto Wolfpack.
