Josh Morris has laid to bed any rumours of a return to play alongside with his brother Brett at the Dragons, after re-signing with the Bulldogs for a further three seasons.

The contract extension will see Josh stay with the Bulldogs club until the end of the 2014 season.

“I’m very happy to be staying with the Bulldogs long term,” Morris said.

“I was keen to have my decision made prior to the start of the season and thanks to the Bulldogs and my management team this was able to occur.

“Obviously given my history there’s been plenty of talk about what I would do once my current contract was up. Now I’ve made my decision I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into making this season a successful one for the Bulldogs.”

Morris has received praise from coach Kevin Moore, with Moore pleased to see that Josh has committed himself to the club.

“Josh has been outstanding for our Club over the past two years and I’m over the moon that he has shown great loyalty and commitment in signing on long-term,” Moore said.

“He’s a world class player in his own right and his try scoring record at the Bulldogs speaks for itself. He would be up there with the best centres in the game right now.

“But he brings far more than that to the Club. Josh has been raised with tremendous values and is a very popular figure with our Members, our staff and his team mates.

“He’s become a State of Origin and Australian player since he arrived at the Bulldogs and I think he’ll only keep progressing over the next three seasons.”

With Morris set to play his 100th match this season, Bulldogs CEO Todd Greenberg is also pleased that Morris decided to stay on with the club.

“Josh was a priority re-signing for us as a Club this year and I’m very excited that we can head into the upcoming NRL season knowing that his long term future is with the Bulldogs,” Bulldogs chief executive officer Todd Greenberg said.
