Morris, Oliver

Oliver James Morris played a season for  Pontypridd RFC before he 'went North' and signed for Hunslet in November 1937. He had apparently been brought to Pontypridd from Llanelli by Pontypridd RFC, and provided with a job at Maritime Coke ovens. Morris lodged at a house in Rosser Street, Maesycoed, which also housed another player, Emlyn Walters, who went on to Captain the club. In the Pontypridd RFC 1938 AGM the president of the club, David Williams said

"A great blow had been dealt them when they lost the best post-war player they had had in Pontypridd, in the person of Oliver Morris. Previous to his going the three-quarter line trouble was not so evident, but after his departure they had simply 'gone to rags' and this had greatly affected the gate receipts."
