19 posts in this topic

please god no, it would be 1982 and jeff grayshon all over again, please forget about it mr morley - thanks for your contribution to the game but its over now, watch it on tv just stay away from the set up, fans can watch an entire warrington game on tv now and not even notice your on the field or hear your name mentioned in commentary box, but surley mcnamars wouldn't be so dumb -would he?

He could okay in the halves instead of Sinfield. Far more pace.

its not a joke- he has been on sky today openly saying he is aiming for a place

And that's an issue why?

If he's playing well enough he deserves one, if not he doesn't. Surely him aiming and striving for one is no bad thing.

He'll do well to get in the forwards, plenty of competition for places. Thats said what a warrior, if his form is good there has to be a place for his experience in the squad. Love his commitment to the cause

of course it isn't a bad thing for a well past it great to still have ambition, but he hasn't played well enough for at least 4 years to merit a sl place but gets by on his former merits and reputation never mind a wc place, mr morley  has been mr invisible for quite a while now, sit on the bench-take the water out by all means like the former greats do in state of origin but please don't put yourself forward for the team.

So what should Morley do?

"It doesn't matter how well I'm playing rugby, I shouldn't be in the England team."

Nothing wrong with aiming. He's not said he thinks he deserves a place.

your point that he hasnt been good enough for sl for the last four years is laughable. He has been an excellent signing for Wire and is still doing a good job at the right end of the table.

simply not true,to be fair wire should have won the gf (more than once) if they had made a better  "high profile"signing

Morley would get in pretty much every 17 in Superleague.

Every player should have the ambition to play at the top echelons of the game, those that have retired are just saving face.

I don't think Morley is good enough anymore, as simple as that. He looks no worse than sure pick Gareth Ellis who seems to have aged 10 years since arriving in Hull.

Higher profile like who???

Morley has lifted 3 cc's 1lls and lead his team to a GF. 99% of wire fans are more than happy with this return.

Maybe he'll finish with a winners ring with the wire, who knows??

Good post and I do agree, but maybe morleys last 4+ play off games proves he's still got it and gets a place in the squad and maybe the 17

 I agree with you almost entirely, but doesn't that opening sentence provide an accurate and, even disturbing display of the general state of S/L, rather than the opposite? Morley would long since have lost his place in the NRL, no argument about that.  

 

I would be on the side of anyone declaring the merits of Adrian Morley, but,  that would be if they were referring to his achievements a few seasons ago rather than presently. Ambition to play in the W/Cup, correct, but being realistic there are so many better, more effective forwards going around than Morley now and, although his persona and past reputation alone could be the persuasive factor enough in him gaining selection, yet in all honesty I do believe that would only be done by excluding some younger more effective player than he himself now is.

 

Ellis, again I agree, but, I did think that his past two or three games have shown a very distinct improvement in his form and if he did achieve his very best before the W/Cup, then he probably could be worthy of at least a squad place due if only on his experience of playing against and what to expect from those from the NRL.

He may or may not still be good but is he better then other props who will be in contention for a place?

Burgess x 2, Graham, Mossop or Crabtree? Plenty others too who may warrant a place by the end of season.

I do think its an International series too far for Moz though, as great as he was.
