The player that Gold Coast should "embed" into their club


SEN Breakfast host Garry Lyon believes Western Bulldogs defender Dale Morris would be a valuable addition to the Gold Coast Suns.

The Bulldogs confirmed yesterday that Morris had torn the same ACL he partially injured in March, but the 36-year-old is not calling time on his career yet.

Lyon believes he could be the perfect recruit for the Suns, who are languishing at the bottom of the ladder on three wins.

“He is exactly the sort of player (they need),” he told SEN Breakfast.

“He’s your heart and soul man that you get up there.

“You embed him into that club. Embed Dale Morris in there.

“If you’re a Western Bulldogs supporter, take this as a compliment because what I’m saying is that man is so good and so influential.

“For the good of the competition, he could go up there and his legacy may very well be: “I’ll bring this Gold Coast group together.”

Lyon suggests that Morris could make his influence felt in the coaches box rather than on the field at the Suns.

“Make him cultural coach,” he said. “Pay him what he needs to be paid.”

“It’s like a virus. Embed him in amongst the group and let his goodness spread.”

Morris underwent an ACL reconstruction yesterday.

It is the second time he has injured his ACL during a pre-season, albeit to different knees.
