looks like the end of the road for one of the greatest players of all time - was still in great try scoring form for the roosters- sad when a career of a legend is ended in full flight by injury

He’s performed consistently for his entire career including SOO & Kangaroos. So yeah he’s in that bracket

15 year career , tremendous consistency throughout and in fact just got better - even at 34 . Fourth highest try scorer , dual premiership winner , world cup winner . 23 tries in 18 tests , origin regular , team of the decade selection .

Course he is

I saw the injury but not heard any follow up. What's crack?

Torn ACL so probably the end at the age of 34, heartbreaking scenes in the chooks shed at the end as his teammates and brother tried to console him

Certainly a modern great jim, as with all claims of all time great it sometimes gets clouded by being a top player now.

Very sad news, he always seemed a very fair player as well.  Very very consistent. I hope he goes on to great things in the many years ahead as an ex player.

talk of the morris twins coaching as a double act- great minds think alike etc- now that would be interesting

Hope it’s not the end for him as he was in such good form. When I think of the Morris twins I always think of the time they were on opposite sides (going to say Dragons and bulldogs). A bit of a scuffle broke out in the game and they started a pretend fight between themselves.

Great player with a wonderful work ethic that enabled him to be one of the best wingers in the game at 34,wouldn’t write him off yet.

He's been consistently one of the very best in his position for years and years. I think I read that he wanted to get into coaching when he hangs up the boots, so he won't be lost to the game if this injury is career-ending.

I’ve only had access to NRL on TV for a couple of seasons but have loved watching Morris in that time, sad to see it end like this for him.

When he was over in 2013 with that Aussie WC side he was right up there with the best wingers of the modern era at that time. To keep playing at that level for so long is a credit to his professionalism. Great player.
