Melbourne Storm has agreed to terms with Parramatta Eels outside back Ryan Morgan for the remainder of the 2016 season.

The Club commenced discussions with Morgan recently, following a recent horrid run with injuries to its outside backs stocks.

Melbourne Storm Football Director, Frank Ponissi, said the signing of Morgan was a welcome addition to Storm’s NRL squad.

“Ryan will very much be a welcomed addition to our squad, adding much needed depth to our outside backs.

“We also see Ryan’s signing as an opportunity to bring further experience to our roster,” Ponissi said.

Morgan, 26, is a Parramatta junior and made his debut for the Eels in 2011. He has played 84 NRL games.

Morgan will commence with Melbourne Storm immediately.

  1. Looks like Parramatta is letting go of their fringe players… Anyone know what the go is with Watmough?

    • This was already happening before the cap thing originally Morgan had an option to return to the eels in 2017 dunno if he does still didn’t read the full article sick of eels news

      • I’m an Eels supporter and sick of it too. No other news on the go so let’s concentrate on the Eels lol

        • I agree but your board are not exactly helping are they. This is gonna be news for months. The sharks have been quite for a while, must be some new sleeze story there for the press to find.

        • Here is some news Flake is still the biggest grub on this site. Sorry everyone that is old news.

  2. Morgan could be a quality player if he puts his mind on the job, you are right dogs he would have been on chips and Melbourne would have got him for near nothing just hope he has a dig

    • I’m not sure he’ll ever earn a full time spot, with any club, but he’s a handy reserve.

      I didn’t understand why we resigned him when we have a lot of young players, itching for an opportunity to cover in the centres / wing.

      Good luck to him.

      • If Bellamy can turn Morgan into a decent player he would be a magician. I’ll try not to be mean but Morgan just isn’t a first grader. No size, not much speed, no strength to break tackles, average passing game…doesn’t offer to much other than enthusiasm IMO.

        To me Morgan typified what was wrong with Parra for so long…acceptance of being average. I for one am glad to see the back of him.

        Good luck Morgan and storm, I think you will need it

        • You could be right Footy, I was just making the point that Belamy has a reputation for turning rocks into diamonds but if Morgan doesn’t have the basics then he could just be a stop gap for their current injuries.
