Education

Morgan is a fluent Welsh speaker having attended Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Pontsionnorton (Pontsionnorton Welsh Primary school) and later Ysgol Gyfun Rhydfelen Welsh comprehensive school.

Club career

Morgan (height 5 ft 10 in, weight 13 st 4 lb) initially played club rugby for his home town club, Neath as player/coach in June 2009.

International career

Morgan made his debut for Wales in a match against the USA in Wilmington in 1997. His career has been affected by a series of injuries, including a broken foot and a knee ligament injury. The broken foot meant that he missed the entire 2004 Six Nations Championship. In the 2005 Six Nations he was a substitute against England and Italy, coming on as a replacement for Hal Luscombe in both matches, but then regained a starting position for the remaining matches. He scored two tries in the match against Scotland and a crucial try in the win against Ireland which clinched the Grand Slam.
