I AM sure I speak for all of the Molong Rugby League community, as well as Manildra and Cargo, when I express my shock at the horrific motor vehicle accident involving Trent and Steve Morgan.
Trent, ably assisted by brother Steve, captain-coached the Bulls to the finals for the three years that they were with us, 2008, 2009 and 2010. During that period we witnessed the fantastic football skills of the Morgan brothers and I personally will never forget some of the unbelievable tries scored by them. In his first year with Molong, Trent took out the Alex Armstrong Shield for the leading try scorer in the Woodbridge Cup with an amazing and record-breaking 50 tries. In their second year here Steve Morgan took out the Woodbridge Cup’s best and fairest.
After all of the Bulls’ wins Trent would always remain humble in his victory speech and thank the opposition team for their efforts. It was this sportsmanship combined with great skill that stamped these two as great rugby league players. Ever since meeting Trent and Steve I valued their friendship highly. It is hard to believe that Trent is no longer with us. Everyone in our club is praying for Steve’s full recovery.
Trent’s legacy, apart from his beautiful young wife and family is undoubtedly the positive effect on others that he had, especially on our young players, as a role model.
We have all lost a good bloke.
