Josh Morris excited to play alongside brother Brett at Sydney Roosters

Josh Morris is relishing the moment of taking to the field alongside brother Brett for his new club Sydney Roosters.

The 33-year-old was granted a release from Cronulla Sharks to finish his career at Sydney Roosters alongside his brother Brett, signing a one-year deal with the club.

Morris has yet to make his Roosters debut because the season was suspended not long after he arrived at the club – but he is looking forward to playing alongside Brett again.

He told Roosters TV: “It’d be nice to finally get to train with my new team-mates but I’ve been able to train alongside Brett and do a bit of new training that I haven’t been exposed to with the new team yet.

“I’m enjoying it, Brett is probably a little bit fitter than me so I’ve been trying to keep up with him but in the gym I’m a little bit stronger so I’ve been trying to help him out a little bit there.

“It was a weird day (on my first day). It was like turning up to your first day of school then being told you don’t have to turn up for another five or six weeks.

“I guess it’s good now we know what the season’s going to look like now and when it’s going to kick off so it’s very exciting times ahead again.”

The NRL will recommence as a 20 round competition on May 28, with the Grand Final being played on October 25.
