Wales World Cup star joins Swinton

Swinton have signed Wales international Ben Morris for the rest of the 2019 campaign.

The 21-year-old joined Rochdale ahead of the 2019 season from St Helens but was recently released to take up a deal with the Lions.

Morris – who can play centre or back-row – has already earned four caps for Wales and was part of their squad for the 2017 World Cup.

Swinton coach Stuart Littler said: “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.”
