The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs today confirmed the signing of Australian and New South Wales representative, Brett Morris, on a four year contract, through until the end of 2018.
Morris, 28, will arrive at the Bulldogs for season 2015 and will join his new team mates when pre-season commences at the back end of November.
The Kiama Knights junior made his NRL debut for the St George Illawarra Dragons in Round 9 of season 2006 and has since gone on to play 169 matches, scoring 112 tries as well as making 10 appearances in the sky blue for New South Wales and has played 18 Tests for Australia.
Chief Executive Raelene Castle is excited about the arrival of Morris.
“It’s a significant signing for the club,” Castle said. “To be able to get a player of Brett’s calibre and profile is exciting. We look forward to him joining the squad in preparation for the 2015 season.”
Coach Des Hasler is pleased to see Morris join the blue and white.
“Brett is an experienced player that has played at the highest level and we are keen to get him into our set-up and be part of our squad for next season and beyond,” Hasler said.
Current Bulldogs player and twin brother of Brett, Josh, is over the moon that he will be able to play with his brother on a more regular basis once again.
“We obviously played footy together since we were six and although I chose a different path back 2009 when I decided to come to the Bulldogs, it is great that we will be able to go out there together every week and do what we love,” Josh said. “He is a great player and I believe he will fit into the culture we have here at Belmore very easily.”
