Leinster sign Morris


Leinster have signed Niall Morris on a short-term contract from Leicester Tigers.

Morris made eight appearances for Leinster before leaving the province to join the Tigers in 2011. Since moving to the Aviva Premiership, the 27-year-old utility back has played 75 times, scoring 18 tries, including one in the club's Premiership final win over Northampton in 2013.

At international level, Morris has played for the Emerging Ireland team on three occasions and has six caps for the Ireland U20s.

"After five enjoyable years in England, I am delighted to return to my home province, Leinster," Morris said.

"I know the club well and it has fantastic players, staff and supporters. It is one of the biggest clubs in Europe and I am very much looking forward to being part of such a great set-up, again."

Morris has met with the rest of the Leinster squad and head coach Leo Cullen is pleased to welcome him back to the province.

"Niall was unlucky with injuries in his last season in England but has performed at a very high level for the Tigers in both the Premiership and in the Champions Cup," Cullen said.

"He brings good experience to our back three, an area that is already very competitive and we look forward to seeing Niall in action on a pitch soon.”
