Sydney Roosters legend and proud Englishman Adrian Morley says he will be supporting the Tricolours when they clash with Wigan on the weekend in the World Club Challenge.
“Unfortunately, I’ll be supporting the Sydney Roosters on Sunday! If it had been any other Australian side, I’m obviously a proud Englishman and I would have gone for the English side, but with the personal touch that’s there, I’ll be going for the Roosters,” he told Sky Sports in the UK.
The firebrand forward also revealed he was offered more money to stay in the Super League in his playing days but decided to challenge himself in Australia instead.
“It’s great now that you do actually get paid more in the NRL. When I went over, I did actually get offered a bit more money to stay in Super League. But it wasn’t about money for me, it was about the challenge and testing myself.”
Morley played 114 games for the Roosters and won the premiership in 2002. He also represented Great Britain and England on 53 occasions.
