London Broncos have completed the signing of St Helens’ centre Ryan Morgan on a one-year loan deal.
The move, announced in today’s London Evening Standard, sees the newly promoted Broncos bring more Super League experience to the capital after their return to the top flight and will no doubt see him installed as one of the club’s first choice centres. Morgan’s chances with St Helens were likely to become fewer in 2019 following their impressive signing of Fijian international Kevin Naiqama and, as a result, the Australian was made available for a move. Morgan made 21 appearances for the club last season, scoring 12 tries.
His switch to London has been rumoured for weeks and he may soon be joined by the ‘Red Vee’s’ big front rower Kyle Amor, another who seems surplus to requirements for Justin Holbrook’s 2019 plans.
