    Wants to play centre?
    No worries, sign him before 30th June . He can play whichever side Latrell doesn't want.

            Yeah like he would, just as bad as Latrell in that department.

              Injury taking longer than expected to heal, but I would definitely stick with Morris. Will be refreshed and ready to go for the back half of the year.

                I suspect it's a player welfare thing and that Morris + Keary coulda played last week and this week if REALLY needed. Wouldn't have changed either result, however.

                  https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/07/05/...e-month-delay/ B-Moz's 'secret' Roosters meeting followed by painful three-month delay

                  Author Dan Walsh NRL.com Reporter Timestamp Fri 5 Jul 2019, 10:28 AM

                  One meeting was all it took for Brett Morris to buy into Trent Robinson's rugby league philosophy, but his impatience to start performing in red, white and blue ended up setting the veteran flyer back three months.

                  After being forced out of the Bulldogs due to salary cap issues last year, Morris was Roosters-bound as soon as his one "secret" meeting with Robinson was wrapped up.

                  A blown out knee injury suffered just two games into his Tricolours career against Manly kept the veteran flyer on ice until last week's loss to Melbourne in Adelaide, where Morris returned out of position at centre and defended at five-eighth in a reshuffled backline.

                  NRL.com understands that while Morris's original MCL strain had forecast a six-week recovery, follow-up scans two months ago also revealed a PCL injury which sidelined the 32-year-old for an extra six weeks.

                  Morris conceded his desire to get on the paddock for his new club played a part in his frustrating time watching from the stands.

                  "Initially we thought it was going to be a four-to-six-week injury but there were a few complications along the way," Morris said.

                  "We probably pushed it a bit too hard too early and as a result that set us back.

                  "I've had issues with this knee before but never any ligaments so it was a new thing for me and it was learning how to manage that as well.

                  "We would have a few good weeks there and then there would be a bad week where we couldn't do anything. It happened a couple of times which was frustrating but it worked out in the end."

                  Morris will line up again in the centres in Friday's clash with Wests Tigers, before a selection headache emerges when he and fellow representative wingers Daniel Tupou and Ryan Hall are all fit and firing.

                  Morris's signing last year, as well as the arrival of Hall at the premiers, cast doubt on Tupou's place at the club with rival outfits almost immediately sounding out his management to see if the lanky Tongan could be on the move.

                  The Roosters and Tupou say both parties are wholly committed to the next 18 months of his deal, while for Morris it took just his first and only meeting Robinson to do the same.

                  Having never met the two-time premiership-winning coach, the Quest Hotel on Cronulla beach proved the unlikely setting for Morris's next career move.

                  A leaking roof had Morris and his family staying temporarily on the beachfront, with brother Josh coincidentally landing a few kilometres away when he shifted to the Sharks.

                  "When I met Trent I was very excited and very keen to join the club," Morris said.

                  "I was very impressed with him. As soon as he walked out the door I said [to manager David Riolo] 'do whatever you have to do, get me to the Roosters'.


                  "It was a great meeting, it was done very secretly too which was good.

                  "We were staying above Northies in the apartments there. Robbo came and met us at the apartment and it went well."

                    Read that article too Gaz and I must say it brought a smile to my face. Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall.
