Super League legend claims he wouldn’t have been shown infamous red card if he was Australian

One of the most infamous moments in international rugby league was when Adrian Morley was sent off after 12 seconds against Australia.

However, the brilliant British forward feels that he wouldn’t have been sent off had he been an Australian.

He said on the Out of Your League podcast:

“I knew there was contact but I don’t think Steve Ganson had seen the actual incident. It all happened so quick and I think he got a message saying it was a bad one and he’s got to go.

“If he’d have just put it on report I thought that would have been a fairer outcome but having a look at it now it was a bad challenge and it was worthy of a send off, but I just thought with it being the first minute of the game he could have put it on report.

“If it had been an Aussie do you think Ganson would have send an Aussie off? I don’t think he would have.”

Morley also shared what it was like walking down the tunnel: “I couldn’t believe it. Having been so exited and fired up for the game, I thought we had a great chance of beating them and we were beating them for 70 to 75 minutes until they pipped us at the end.”
