Swindon Robins have announced the signing of teenage ace Nick Morris.
The 17-year-old Australian helped Glasgow Tigers to the Premier League title last term, and also impressed during a doubling-up spell with Coventry Bees.
Now Morris has agreed a deal with Swindon, and will line-up in their top-five.
Swindon co-promoter Gary Patchett said: "Alun Rossiter (manager) and I liked the look of Nick when we first saw him in the UK a couple of years ago and we're delighted to have him here. His father, Lee, is a close personal friend and Nick rides Blunsdon well, as we found to our cost last season!
"He will be in the top five but I have no concerns about that as he has the talent to go a very long way in the sport."
