The Sydney Roosters have signed Bulldogs star Brett Morris on a two-year deal that will begin in 2019, as reported by Fox Sports.

The 31-year old nearly signed with the Dragons prior to the transfer deadline, but he will now officially be a Rooster until at least the end of the 2020 NRL season.

Morris departs Belmore after four seasons, playing 59 games and scoring 31 tries over that period.

It is a move that will further aid the Bulldogs’ salary clog after signing players to too many back-loaded contracts, while NSW prop David Klemmer is also rumoured to being shopped around, although the Bulldogs have denied those claims.

It caps off an exciting period for Sydney, who last week signed England veteran Ryan Hall to bolster the club’s backline depth.

  1. I Hope Woodduck acknowledges this what others have been trying to tell him for a week. It was called the cooling off period of 10 days.

    • He is replacing Reece Robinson on similar money. You don’t have to be Einstein to work that out. one over the hill player for another. Wha’ts the big uproar? Different if the Roosters signed him in his prime. BUT they didn’t. A bargain but that will find it difficult to make first grade. Just as Reece Robinson has found out the hard way. Get over it sooks. He is not even up to first grade these days.💪👴👍

  2. This is a smart signing by the Roosters – whilst Morris is at the end of his career, I think he will be a good influence on Latrell Mitchell.

    • There are a lot of jealous people who comment these days…the roosters are a club who manages their money well. I’m sorry the club you go for isnt good at that.
