Bears sign versatile forward Morgan Eames

Versatile forward Morgan Eames has joined the Bears from French Pro D2 side Béziers, the club can confirm.

The English-qualified 27-year-old, who can operate in the second row and back row, has also represented Championship sides Nottingham and Doncaster Knights.

Standing at 6ft 7in and weighing in at 126kg, Eames scored two tries in 17 appearances for Béziers during the 2021/22 season.

“Morgan is a big man, comfortable in the second and back row and will suit the way we play. He is a formidable operator and will bolster our depth,” said Director of Rugby, Pat Lam.

“He’s English qualified and has been one of the standout forwards in ProD2, so arrives at the Bears hungry to take his opportunity in the Premiership.”

Eames added: “I’m hugely excited to be joining the Bears and can’t wait to get started. It’s a great opportunity for me to develop alongside world class players and establish myself in one of the best competitions in the world.”
