Morgan Gannon joined the Rhinos Academy last season and follows into the footsteps of his older brother Jacob, who is part of the Warrington Wolves Super League squad. His father Jim played over 200 games in England with Halifax, Huddersfield, Widnes and Hull KR having moved to the country from Australia where he played for Balmain and is originally from Newcastle, NSW.
Morgan combines his studies at college with training with the Rhinos first team squad and has impressed the Rhinos coaching team with his attitude and ability during pre-season. He made a brief appearance off the bench in the pre-season game at Huddersfield. Originally from the Siddal club, he can play second row or loose forward.
