THE chances of the Morris twins re-uniting at the St George Illawarra Dragons next NRL season appear unlikely after Josh said he’s keen to reap the benefits of an exciting new era at Canterbury.
Josh is off contract at the end of this season, and there has been some speculation that the Dragons are eager to lure the classy centre back to join his brother Brett and add to the 46 games he played in the red and white after making his first-grade debut as a 20-year-old in 2007.
But it’s no surprise the classy centre is keen to remain with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs after his move from the Dragons at the end of 2008 coincided with him making his debut for NSW and Australia.
“I’m off contract this year actually so hopefully we can have some talks and progress from there,” said Josh after conducting a clinic with about 40 kids from St Mark’s College at Wattle Grove in Sydney’s south-west as part of the NRL’s Community Carnival.
“I’m happy where I am at the moment. It’s a really good club and I think that the culture that they’re building is going to be around for a while and it’s a good culture.”
Josh is set to form a strong left-side combination with one of the club’s key recruits, backrower Frank Pritchard, who has joined the club after eight seasons with Penrith.
