Morgan ready for Flying Fijians
September 17, 2015 6:54 pm
England forward, Ben Morgan says he is desperate to repay the faith shown by the England coaches, after being selected for tomorrow’s World Cup opener against the Vodafone Flying Fijians.
The number eight only returned from a broken leg last month but has been picked ahead of Billy Vunipola.
And the Gloucester forward acknowledges the support shown by head coach Stuart Lancaster.
Morgan suffered the leg injury in a Premiership match in January, but says he never let himself think his World Cup dream could be over despite the months of painstaking rehab.
The 26-year-old believes he is match fit and nearing his best form, despite only playing in two competitive games since his comeback.
And Morgan has urged his team-mates to savor the experience despite the inevitable pressure of being the host nation.
The Flying Fijians will take on England at 7am tomorrow and you can watch it live on FBC TV.
