Morris,B 17071241NH

Bulldogs winger Brett Morris has announced his retirement from all representative rugby league.

The 30-year-old flyer played 15 games for New South Wales across seven series, while also making 18 appearances for Australia.

Morris made his Origin debut in Game One of the 2010 series and crossed the try-line on four occasions for NSW.

He was a member of the winning 2014 Blues side.

His test career began in 2009 and included 23 tries as well as being a member of the successful 2013 World Cup Kangaroos team that defeated the Kiwis 34-2 in the final at Old Trafford.

Morris announced his retirement on Instagram and thanked friends and family for their support throughout his time playing at the 'highest level'.

"It was an absolute honour to wear the Blues jersey for one last time," Morris wrote on Instagram.

"I'm so proud to have been able to represent my state and my family in the toughest arena of all and have now made the decision to retire from rep football.

"I've loved the journey and made so many good friends along the way.

"Most of all I want to thank my beautiful family for sticking by me through the good times and the bad.

"I wouldn't be where I am today without you and I love you with all my heart."
