Forward

D.O.B 3, May 1995

Front-row forward Ben has made 77 appearances up to the start of the 2018 campaign for the Lions after joining us at the start of the 2015 season from Wigan. He emerged through the Wigan Academy system and had been on the fringes of the Warriors’ first team squad when the Lions snapped him up. At the end of that first season with Swinton he had an outstanding game in the promotion play-off final victory over Keighley, and has gone on to enjoy great consistency ever since, particularly when used as an impact player off the bench. The highlight of his 2017 campaign was a last minute try in the crucial Super 8s win at Dewsbury, which helped secure the Lions’ Championship status.
