Brett Morris’ illustrious rugby league career appears all but over after scans confirmed the 34-year-old winger has a torn ACL and will likely need surgery.

A devastated Morris was in tears after suffering the season-ending injury during the Sydney Roosters’ big NRL win over Newcastle on Saturday night.

The Roosters entered Sunday hoping for a miracle, but instead their worst fears were confirmed when scans showed a rupture in his right knee.

Making matters worse, Roosters prop Lindsay Collins has suffered the same injury and will join Morris, Luke Keary and the medically-retired Jake Friend in missing the rest of the season.
