Morgan joins 'Valley Ravens'
Kevin Morgan
Morgan has been at Swansea since 1999
Wales and Swansea full-back Kevin Morgan has signed a three-year deal with the new Pontypridd-Bridgend regional side.

Morgan's announcement is the first in what is expected to be a spate of signings in the next few weeks as the so-called 'Newcos' name their playing squads.

The 26-year-old started his career at Sardis Road, but moved to Swansea in 1999.

Brett Davey, Gareth Cull, Siua Taumalolo and Matt James are the leading full-backs in the current Pontypridd and Bridgend squads, but James will be heading to Bourgoin next season.

Morgan is presently recuperating from surgery after tearing knee ligaments in the Six Nations game with Scotland.

The 24-cap player, regarded by Wales coach Steve Hansen as one of the leading full-backs in world rugby, hopes to be fit for this autumn's World Cup in Australia.

  • Ebbw Vale prop Martin Jones has also agreed to join the Bridgend/Pontypridd squad for next season.

    He will fill the void left by Duncan Bell's departure to Bath.

  • Swansea have been boosted by the injury news on fly-half Gavin Henson and back-row man James Bater.

    Both were carried off in the league win against Pontypridd on Saturday with ankle and neck problems respectively.

    The injuries were not as bad as first feared, though, and whilst Henson is expected to be out for a week Bater hopes to be fit to face Bridgend on the weekend.
