Morris extends Bulldogs stay

Canterbury have handed centre Josh Morris a new contract, which will keep him at the Bulldogs until the end of 2014.

During his time at the club Morris, 24, established himself as one of the NRL‘s most dangerous finishers, scoring 26 tries.

He has also appeared for Australia, New South Wales and last year featured in NRL All Stars match.

Morris, who is the twin brother of St George winger Brett, says he is delighted to be remaining with the club.

“I’m very happy to be staying with the Bulldogs long term,” Morris said.

“I was keen to have my decision made prior to the start of the season and thanks to the Bulldogs and my management team this was able to occur.

“Obviously given my history there’s been plenty of talk about what I would do once my current contract was up. Now I’ve made my decision I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into making this season a successful one for the Bulldogs.”

Bulldogs head coach Kevin Moore has praised Morris for his commitment to the Bulldogs.

“Josh has been outstanding for our Club over the past two years and I’m over the moon that he has shown great loyalty and commitment in signing on long-term,” Moore said.

“He’s a world class player in his own right and his try scoring record at the Bulldogs speaks for itself. He would be up there with the best centres in the game right now.”
