Morley believes winning the Grand Final with Warrington Wolves would top Bradford win in 2005
WINNING the Grand Final with Warrington Wolves would put his previous Super League title win in the shade, according to Adrian Morley.
Wolves’ figurehead captain - also a Grand Final winner in the NRL with the Sydney Roosters - played six games on loan for Bradford Bulls at the back end of the 2005 campaign, coming off the bench at Old Trafford to help them beat Leeds Rhinos 15-6.
The victory still ranks as one of the highlights of the 35-year-old’s career, but he admits that to lift the Championship trophy with the Warrington team he has led for more than four years would top that as a special achievement.
“Reaching this final with Warrington means more to me than the Grand Final with Bradford in 2005,” said Morley, who signed a year-long contract extension with the club in August.
“I would not change what happened with Bradford, it was a great experience, but I did feel like an imposter because I had not played with those boys all year.
“I wouldn’t change anything of that, but to go to Old Trafford with Warrington, the team I have captained for a number of years now, would definitely mean more to me than the Bradford victory.”
“We finished top of the league last year, but without a win at Old Trafford you cannot call yourself the champions,” he said.
“We have an opportunity to do that now.
“Leeds have made a habit of winning there over the last couple of years, so they’ll have something to say about it, but just to be given the opportunity to play is going to be fantastic and myself and the boys are excited to have that chance."
