Aussie international Nick Morris is ready to repay Wolverhampton for their 2017 SGB Premiership title heartbreak after moving to Monmore Green for 2019.
Despite being born in Aussie capital Canberra, Morris’ family hails from the West Midlands with father Lee a lifelong Cradley Heath fan.
Wolves is a stable club with good management and I like the place, so I’m excited to be joining them for the new season.
Morris, who also joined Masarna in Sweden last week, played a pivotal role in parent club Swindon lifting the Premiership title at Monmore in 2017. The 24-year-old is a winner of six league titles at all levels in Britain and would love to add to that collection in Wolves colours.
He said: “I’ve got good memories of racing at Wolves and hopefully this time I can win things with them. Wolves is a stable club with good management and I like the place, so I’m excited to be joining them for the new season.”
Morris, who teams up with Sam Masters, Kyle Howarth and Luke Becker, admits he’s particularly looking forward to joining forces with Wolves boss Peter Adams. He said: “Pete has an amazing reputation in the sport and I’m looking forward to working with him.
“I know Sam well and the team is coming together quite nicely. I’m pleased with the way things have fallen into place.”
Wolverhampton owner Chris Van Straaten said: “Nick is a good signing. When we became aware that he could become available, we were interested straight away. It took a few days to get where we wanted to be and finally secure the move and we’re delighted to have him on board.
“This will probably be the last announcement with the team for a few days from now as we weigh up our options.”
