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.

  1. Well they need something, trouble is he won’t be their until next year, if he goes at all, they will be lucky to make the top 7 after todays performance , shocking, and that’s after they escaped with a win against Parra last week, me thinks the writing is on the wall.

  2. Have the Dragons got much depth? Playing all origin players seemed a bit desperate. Considering signing Morris would give the Dragons two of the oldest and slowest wingers in the NRL!

  3. Who cares about Brett Morris. Lets talk about this season 2018. I agree with penso, unless the Dragons find their form quickly the same old thing will happen as last year, they will miss the top 8 again.
    On yesterday’s disgraceful performance against the Tigers they will be lucky to win 1 more game this year out of 7 games left to play.
    We all know what that means don’t we, the Dragons will end up on 28 points and miss the top 8 again.
    There is not much depth in the backs at all, with Nene McDonald’s latest injury there is really no one else to fill his spot apart from Nightingale and Mann, hardly the big robust wingers that most sides have.

  4. B Moz had a shocker on the weekend as did his Josh. It was only his last second try saving tackle to Johnstone that made it looked good but the game was already gone.

    Don’t forget about Bretts injuries and body.

    Dragons can have him

  5. Dragons certainly don’t need an ageing winger in Brett Morris back, when we have our own in Nightingale. Jason needs to hang up the boots in 2018 as his performances are no longer up to first grade standards.
