Morgan was born in Garnant and gained his first international cap playing for Wales Secondary Schools, he was educated at Christ College, Brecon, in a team that contained future Wales full internationals Harry Bowcott and J.D. Bartlett. While at Cambridge University he played for the University rugby team in a Varsity match. Between 1926 and 1929, Morgan won four Blues, and gained his first cap while still at Cambridge, in a game against France at St Helens. It was an incredible debut for Morgan, scoring a try and being prominent in the scoring of four others. By the time he played his third international game in 1929 he was playing for Swansea, and on 2 February that year, at the age of 22, he was captain of his country. He would play just another four games, three more as captain.
