St George Illawarra Dragons winger Brett Morris has won the Tru Blue Award at the annual NSWRL Awards night at Curzon Hall, Marsfield on Wednesday.

The NSW Blues winger was joint-winner with brother Josh (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs) for their efforts during this season's State of Origin series.

“Brett and Josh both played on under duress in game one and came up with inspirational plays which highlighted the squad’s commitment to the Blues ethos,” said NSW Head Coach Laurie Daley.

“It is fitting that they have been able to share this newly-created award.”

Additionally, Dragons centre Josh Dugan was named NSW Blues Man of the Match for Game III.
