Frazer Morris may be only 24 years of age, but he’s relishing the prospect of being a senior pro in Hunslet’s new-look squad.
Head coach Alan Kilshaw is packing his side ahead of the 2022 Betfred League 1 campaign with talented, hungry – and mainly local – youngsters, and Morris, who has agreed a one-year deal after impressing last season, is looking forward to helping nurture the new kids on the block.
The prop made a big impact, and became a huge favourite with the fans, with his robust approach after joining the Parksiders during the summer. And the former Dewsbury, Halifax and Wakefield man, who is a product of go-ahead amateur outfit Meltham All Blacks, admits to having enjoyed himself at the South Leeds Stadium from the start.
“I was made very welcome here, by the players, by the coaches and by the supporters, and I’ve had no thoughts about leaving,” he said. “I’ve not looked elsewhere at all, and I liked what I heard when `Killer’ made it very clear that he wanted me to stay and told me I‘d be a bit of a senior figure to the younger lads and could give them a bit of guidance. I don’t mind helping bring on any `one per centers’ – not that we’ll have any – one bit!“
Above all, I’d like to lead by example. I’ve a big work ethic, making hard yards and putting in a lot of effort in defence.”
Kilshaw said “I am really glad to be working with Frazer again and I feel a settled pre season will only enhance his game and experience at Hunslet RLFC.
He did fantastically well for us coming in last season and showed how much we missed him in the play off semi when he was unavailable.
He runs hard and tackles hard and gets through a load of work, he is also smart around the ruck in both offence & defence, I can see Frazer having a really strong season for Hunslet in 2022″
