Morgan Passman’s try-scoring exploits for the Newcastle Falcons at youth level haven’t gone unnoticed.
In January 2018, the winger signed his first professional contract with the Falcons and stepped up to the club’s senior academy set-up.
Born in Middlesbrough, Morgan first began playing at Yarm RUFC at the age of four and there, he rose through the ranks, representing the club at every age group before featuring at senior level for the first time in December 2016.
In 2015, he joined the Falcons academy and the former Egglescliffe School pupil made his Premiership Rugby A-League debut against Wasps at Broadstreet in September 2017.
Morgan has also been nurtured at Gosforth Academy and he was part of the team that reached a second successive AASE Championship final in 2017.
He scored a try but was unable to prevent Gosforth losing 66-14 to Hartpurty College at Allianz Park, although he then received a call-up to the England U18 squad in early 2018.
Throughout the years, Morgan has been ably supported by his family, with dad Steve, who coaches Durham at Under-17 and Under-18 level, and mum Bev providing him with ‘the best taxi service he’s never had to pay for’.
He credits coaches at Egglescliffe, Yarm, Newcastle and England for his development, as well as his father, who has helped prepare him for the modern game.Last updated: 7 March 2018
