MORRIS BROTHERS ON THE WAY OUT AT BELMORE

Post by Elderslie Tiger » Mon 07 May, 2018 1:28 pm

Reports are the twins are on the way out due to salary cap pressures rumours says their on $750k are they past their use by date or could we get 2 good years out of them on a much reduced rate they want to play on.

Even if the dogs payed all their salary it would be a no.

The reason the dogs are in so much trouble with their cap is paying $750 000 for players like the Morris twins.

Are they actually still under contract for next year or is it just that the dogs have no room to re-sign them?

I mean if they already have a contract they don't have to go anywhere. Just do as Greg Eastwood is doing and play in the ISP.

I hope they don't have contracts for next year though as it means the dogs still have their cap problems but with 2 less experienced yet getting older players and no money to replace them.

I'd take them at 550 e pair. Spit the money any way you like. each. No more. Or 220 for the wing morris and 280 for the centre morris.

I've liked both for a long time, but I see no sense in securing the services of two ageing, injury prone players.

I have so much respect for the Morris boys. The only 2 NSW backs to stand up and match QLD year after year. Ask Greg Inglis what he thinks about Josh. They play with heart and professionalism every week. Both are still a lot faster then any our outside backs, and both would easily walk into our side and strengthen it.

They wouldn't be on top of my hit list due to age, but for me they are an option if other targets fall through.
