The Kiama junior has touted newcomer Gerard Beale to make a solid push for the available Custodian’s jersey and is looking forward to working with him when the Trials begin in 2013.
Morris feels confident in his fitness level heading into the Christmas break and credits a tough preseason training schedule that has been whipping the squad into shape.
“Some of the new boys have been really impressive in training so far and it’s great to see so much young talent coming through the club,” said Morris.
“Guys like Gerard Beale and Tyson Frizell have been training the house down and doing everything right so they’ll do well for us next year.
“I’ll be pretty happy to go back onto the wing this season; playing fullback these days is a lot tougher than what it used to be.
“Having said that I think we’ve got a great pickup in Gerard [Beale] there who will probably take over the position and I’m looking forward to making a bit of a combination with him next year.
“The body’s feeling really good, preseason has been really tough but all the boys have been enjoying the training.
“I think the training gets harder every year but the boys have responded and trained really hard and I think come round one we’re going to have a side that’s fit, fast, strong and ready to go out there and rip into it.”
