Despite finishing top try-scorer in the Four Nations campaign St George winger Brett Morris has no plans to rest on his laurels.
The 23-year-old wingman has revealed his desire to help the Dragons build on last season’s minor premiership title and collect an NRL crown.
The joint venture club crashed out of the competion at the semi-final stage following their 24-10 loss to Brisbane.
Morris went on to star for the Kangaroos during their end-of-year tournament in the UK scoring six tries and helping Australia to the title.
He missed out on selection for next month’s Allstars vs Indigenous Dream Team fixture but says he has spent time recovering from minor knee surgery and enjoying a holiday.
But now Morris admits that his focus has shifted to helping the Dragons improve on last season’s perfomance.
He said: “Last year the way we ended was a bit of a disappointment, I think the boys are really going to remember that and we’ve got a point to prove.”
“Everyone was labelling us chokers so we want to go out there an show everyone it wasn’t just a fluke.”
Morris says that new recruits Peni Tagive and Sam Greenfield can help the club establish themselves as genuine title contenders.
“Everyone’s been training well, everyone’s come back pretty fit so we’re really looking forward to it.”
“With the new imports and the blokes we’ve got on deck I think we can really give it a crack.”
