Morris his own man in half back role

John Morris is not letting the pressure and high expectations as the new Wests Tigers half-back affect him.

The former Parramatta five-eighth steps into the crucial number seven role following the departure of half-back Scott Prince to the Gold Coast Titans.

Despite not playing much half-back, Morris is confident he can perform in the role. He has a strong ally in four-time premiership winning coach Tim Sheens, who was keen to bring his talents to Concord Oval.
