Gold Coast are considering placing a contract offer in front of Canterbury’s Josh Morris, with the Dogs unlikely to be able to re-sign the pair given salary cap constraints.

Josh – and twin brother Brett – are still hopeful of playing together, although according to The Australian, the Eels were the only club in signing the brothers together, and their recent acquisition of Blake Ferguson means they may no longer approach the Morris’.

Along with the Titans, the Sharks are also reportedly interested in Josh, while the Dragons have eyes on Brett and his impending decision.

Gold Coast are yet to find the right centres, with Brenko Lee failing to make the position his own during the season, although the recent signing of Dale Copley has added a bit of talent to the backline.

The Bulldogs might not have enough room in their cap to re-sign both twins, although Josh could remain at the club if Brett makes way.

Brett’s exit looms likely, given the Bulldogs already have three wingers on their books for the 2019 season.


  1. Who is the Titans recruitment manager? Hayne, Cartwright, now a busted Morris? I think both twins have had their day. The Titans are becoming the retirement village of the NRL.

  2. I can’t imagine this is true to be honest. We have Hurrell and Copley on the books for next year, Tyrone Peachey is on his way, and Brenko Lee has really impressed in the centre jersey. We’re pretty tight for cap space now, we’re trying to release Cartwright so we can bring in Tyrone Roberts because that’s where we are lacking.
    Signing Shannon Boyd was a huge mistake. We didn’t need him.
