Brett Morris could return to his former club, with St George Illawarra considering a play for their former winger.
The Dragons have made their interest known in Morris, and tried to bring him to the club before the June 30 deadline, although according to smh.com.au, the Bulldogs didn’t want to lose another big name at the deadline following the departures of Aaron Woods and Moses Mbye.
The winger is off contract at the end of the season, but given the transfers of Woods and Mbye, the Bulldogs could now put an offer together to keep Morris, and remain hopeful of doing just that.
Morris’ twin brother, Josh, has already signed away his future, joining the Sharks for the 2019 season.
Morris played 169 first grade matches for the Dragons between 2006-14, before joining the Bulldogs and plying his trade at Belmore for the past four seasons.
While the Dragons look keen on landing Morris, they’ve got their own out-of-contract winger to worry about, as Jason Nightingale is in the final year of his deal.
St George want to keep the veteran around, but will likely offer him a contract on a pay cut for the 2019 season.
An outcome with Nightingale could impact the Dragons’ scope to go after Morris, whether Nightingale signs on or departs the Dragons.
