Jack Morrison Returns
Prop Forward Jack Morrison has Re-Signed for the Bears
TT: Regular followers of the Bears will know the story of Jack. When he joined us mid-way through 2015 he was a real find for us and the following year in 2016 he was one of the best front-rowers in the competition. 2017 was a down year by Jack's standards and due to his work situation, he left the club before the start of 2018, playing locally at top amateur NCL club, Ince Rose Bridge, in Wigan. We have kept in touch and with the departure of the likes of James Geurtjens and Malikhi Lloyd-Jones, we were looking for an experienced prop, so I offered Jack an opportunity to re-join the club in 2019.
On his day, Jack is a damaging and powerful ball carrier and strong defender and we have seen him single-handed take opposition packs apart. He has taken up the challenge to get himself back into League 1 shape, and I have never seen him more motivated and focused on having a great season. I am looking forward to seeing him get back to where he should be - one of the best props in League 1.
JM: I am looking forward to getting back into it after a year away and get back with the lads and coaching staff. I am thankful for the opportunity handed to me by Tom and I am determined to repay that faith. It is going to be a big pre-season and year for me personally and for the team, and I am looking forward to all the challenges and fun times throughout the season, playing in front of the faithful Coventry supporters.
