Morley Staying
With Sydney City Roosters

Great Britain forward Adrian Morley has dashed Leeds' hopes of luring their star man back to Britain by pledging his immediate future to Sydney Roosters.

Morley, the only British player currently plying his trade in Australia's National Rugby League, has signed a new three-year deal which will keep him at the Roosters until the end of the 2006 season.

The strong-running second rower has become a firm favourite Down Under since leaving Leeds at the end of the 2000 season and recently bought a beach-side property on the outskirts of Sydney.
