Josh Morris has been released by the Bulldogs ahead of their NRL match against the Raiders in Canberra this afternoon to replace the injured Josh Dugan (elbow) in Origin I on Wednesday.

He will join the team in Sydney this afternoon after Dugan was ruled out this morning.

NSW coach Laurie Daley confirmed Morris would return to take over at right centre shortly after the Blues announced the withdrawal of Dugan, who experienced further problems with the elbow he hyper-extended in St George Illawarra's loss to South Sydney in round 10.

The NSW right centre role will be nothing new for Morris who has been a regular part of the Blues since 2012 and he resumes one of the hardest jobs in Origin over the last few years - stopping Greg Inglis.
