Morley: Grand Final success is better than Challenge Cup


Warrington captain Adrian Morley insists winning Super League is the most satisfying achievement any player can do.

Morley, who won Grand Finals with Sydney Roosters and Bradford Bulls in 2002 and 2005 respectively, insists winning the Grand Final is a bigger achievement.

He said: “You toil all year and it’s the true test of a champion side. I’m not saying winning the cup is easy, but you just have to win five knock out games and you’ve won the cup whereas Super League is a lot more difficult.

“There are 27 rounds and the play offs and then you have to win the Grand Final. It is a lot tougher to do, but you get a lot more satisfaction winning the Grand Final. I would love to be part of a Warrington team that did that.”

Morley says a Super League Grand Final win with Warrington would be a lot sweeter than when he won the final with Bradford.

Morley travelled over from Sydney to help Bradford in their final few games of the 2005 season. The Roosters had been knocked out of the play-offs early, and they allowed Morley to win the Grand Final with Bradford at the end of that season.

Morely said: “I loved my time at Bradford, I wouldn’t change anything. But having not toured with those boys all year and coming in at the end it felt a little bit hollow to me. To go with Warrington all the way and get the trophy would be special.”
