Left quite an impression in five seasons and 105 games for the Sharks with his contribution to the cause continuing in his role as Cronulla’s Holden Cup Coach in 2017.
Morris was a player aware of his limitations but someone prepared to work harder than the next to achieve his goals.
His highlights were many, however the try saver in the dying seconds of a finals match against the Cowboys in 2013 probably stands out above all the rest, with the last ditch tackle epitomising Morris’s competitive attitude.
Retired in May 2014 after his 300th NRL game, a Monday night match up against the Rabbitohs, due to a serious neck injury, some would say before his time was up but after an outstanding career in the NRL there was little Morris had yet to achieve.
For longevity, for surviving the rigours of 14 years in the NRL, five of those seasons at the Sharks, Morris is well and truly in the conversation when it comes to the best Sharks ‘9’s of all time. Does he get your vote for the Sharks Team of the Half Century?
