Bear cubs can go all the way says Morgan
BRISTOL’S gifted gang of backline proteges are primed to explode on to the international stage, predicts former Wales flyer Kevin Morgan.

Morgan, now part of the strength and conditioning team, can bear first-hand witness to how, over the last 18 months, talented halfbacks Callum Sheedy, Harry Randall, Ioan Lloyd, Andy Uren and full-back Mat Protheroe have taken the Premiership by storm.

Sheedy, who represented England against the Barbarians last summer, is dual-qualified to represent Wales and England, as are Randall and Protheroe, while Uren (England) and Lloyd (Wales) have also earned rave reviews during Bristol’s meteoric rise.

Morgan told The Rugby Paper: “I work mainly with our backs on their speed, strength and explosiveness and being an ex-player gives me a good insight into their make-ups. They are an amazing bunch of talented players to work with.

“A real mantra for us is that we want good, honest players and trainers and these guys have the talent to go far. You need a bit of luck but they’re good enough for Test rugby – they just need the platform to show it.”
