Morris on Origin II Selection
With State of Origin II less than two weeks away, winger Brett Morris remains hopeful in receiving a call from NSW Head Coach Laurie Daley to secure a place in the big game on June 21st, at ANZ Stadium.
As Brett Morris nervously awaits by the phone, he is mindful of other players becoming available to represent the state including Manly’s fullback Tom Trbojevic.
“Look I’d love to play again, but if Tommy [Tom Trbojevic] didn’t get injured I probably wouldn’t have got a run. He’s a great player and having him back for NSW is even better, but I’d love to get a start in game two so we will just wait and see what happens,” expressed Morris.
“It’s Laurie’s decision and as the Coach of New South Wales we have to support him with whatever he chooses to do, but hopefully I get a phone call,” he added.
The 30-year old was involved in the Blues 28-4 victory over QLD in game one at Suncorp Stadium and hopes to represent his state on June 21. He played the full 80 minutes and contributed a line-break and 143 metres during the match.
