New James on the Block

Morgan James signs for Aberavon Rugby Club on a development contract.

Aberavon bolster the pack by signing tight-head prop Morgan James.

Morgan is 18 and is the brother of current Wizards tight-head prop Geraint James. The youngster has played for South Gower Youth, Penclawdd and Ospreys U18s.

Chris Davies, Aberavon Defence Coach, knows plenty about Morgan James as he was his Ospreys U18s Head Coach.

“He is some player. I have bee watching Morgan since around the age of 14 and he has a silky skillset like his brother Geraint.

Sadly, Morgan was struck by injury during the last block of the Regional Age Grade fixtures and would of had plenty of game time there.

I am really looking forward to seeing Morgan progress”, commented Chris.

Jason Hyatt, Head Coach of Aberavon Rugby Club added.

“Morgan is the younger brother of Geraint James, so there no question he poses the right DNA to become a great prop.

Morgan has impressed everyone with his attitude and desire to improve at practice.

I’m positive he will thrive under the watchful eye of Marc Breeze”.

Morgan James said.

“I am looking forward to playing for such a successful and famous club.

I hope that I can help the club develop more and obviously progress my personal game.

I will bring a mobile game to the club in both attack and defence whilst contributing to an already successful pack in the scrum”.
