Luke Morgan will play for the Dragons in Premiership 7s finals
Wales Sevens star Luke Morgan will hot-foot it from the Commonwealth Games to the Premiership Rugby 7s finals at The Twickenham Stoop on Friday night when he lines up for Newport Gwent Dragons.
Director of Rugby Lyn Jones has drafted in Morgan and two other new recruits for the tournament, which sees them start against Newcastle Falcons at 7.15pm. Morgan has replaced the injured Elliot Frewen, while James Cordy-Redden and Angus O'Brien have taken over from James Benjamin and Harris Keddie.
Cordy-Redden, who currently plays for Cross Keys, is another player with sevens experience through playing for Crawshays 7s and Great Britain Students 7s, while O'Brien was a reserve for the Welsh leg of the tournament.
Welsh Sevens caps Rhys Jones and Sam Cross will spearhead the Dragons challenge and Lyn Jones will be delighted that the experienced Matthew Pewtner has overcome the knee injury he sustained during the Welsh leg of the tournament.
