Kai Morgan

Birth Place
Half Back


Half back Kai Morgan picked up plenty of silverware while playing for junior side Siddal. He won three division one titles, two Yorkshire Cups and two Challenge Cups during his time in blue and white, notably out-sprinting Rhinos first teamer Levi Edwards in the Yorkshire Cup quarter finals.

Now at the Rhinos, both players made their Academy debuts in 2018, with Morgan earning his in a win over Wakefield. The half back scored a try and kicked seven goals in the 50-4 result and went on to start in home wins over St Helens (a game in which he kicked four conversions) and Bradford Bulls at Emerald Headingley, finishing the season with 26 points. He also kicked a goal in the post season friendly against NSW Country Rugby League.

After spending 2020 off the field due to the Covid pandemic, Morgan stepped up to the Academy as the only half back and made his first appearance for Chev Walker in a 54-0 win over London Broncos, marking her debut with a try too. Days later, he was back in action for the Under-17s against Hull FC but suffered an injury that ruled him out for two months.

Off the field, his favourite matchday song is ‘Stay Alive’ by grime artist Skepta and if he could play any sport professionally, it would be badminton because he has never lost.
