first_imgMorahan, who won silver with Australia in the 2010 Commonwealth Games and represented his country in the 2013 Sevens World Cup, has jetted home during the two-week break in the Bristol calendar.The 29-year-old will return in time for the round 10 Gallagher Premiership clash with Northampton Saints on Sunday, February 16th.”Walshy (Tim Walsh, Australia Sevens coach) got in contact a little while ago to see if I still had interest in sevens,” said Morahan.”We had to discuss it with Bristol obviously being in the middle of the season, but we figured out this time was a good period with the Six Nations break to come down and have a crack at training with the boys and see where it goes.”It was just an opportunity with this two-week break in the Premiership, come down, do a training week, and see how it goes, and then next week have a bit of a break before I go back.”It’s early enough in the year to go ‘yeah, this will work or no this won’t work’ and then we can go from there.””If it was all to pan out and I got picked in the squad and things like that, I would look at coming down here for an eight/nine-week training camp before that all kicked off in July/August.”last_img
