Adrian Morley - Moz: My Story

For a man who has been a fan favourite no matter what strip hes wearing or country he is in, it was only a matter of time before Adrian Morley released a book detailing his adventures.


That time has now come, with the proud Englishman releasing an autobiography entitled Moz: My Story, and it has a distinctly Roosters feel about it.


From the front cover splashed out in red, white and blue, to the details of premiership glory and the foreword by Ricky Stuart it is not hard to figure out just how much of an impact his time at the Tricolours had on his career.


The book details all three phases of my playing career, from my time at Leeds and making it in first grade, to captaining Warrington and of course my time at the Roosters in between, Morley said.


I have incredibly special memories of my time at the Roosters.


I will never forget the reaction I received in Australia, it was incredible and the fans were so great.


Morley spent six years at the Tricolours, playing 113 games including a premiership in 2002 but there is one specific memory that lingers in the mind of the hard running forward.


It was so great every time the home fans use to chant my name while I was out on the field, Morley said.


Hearing that noise is a memory that will stay with me forever.


Moz: My Story however is much more than an account of Morley's playing career; it is also a brutally honest, no-holds-barred account of his off-field antics. Morley tells it how it is - the tough upbringing, the brushes with the law and his struggle to overcome it all and master the game of rugby league.


"I wanted to be honest because there was no point doing it otherwise," Morley said.


"The good, the bad and the ugly. I am proud of some of the things I did but not others but it is a good lesson on life."


Surely though, there are a few good stories out of his time in Bondi that didn't make the cut?


"I told everything I could that I have done, even the stupid things, but of course I didn't want to dob others in," Morley said with a laugh.


"We had a great time at the chooks away from the field that's for sure."


Morley initially got the idea to write a book after going through old documents and looking at his Mum's old scrapbooks, and says he enjoyed it so much he decided to reflect back on his life and time in the game.


Proving just how fond everyone at the Roosters was of the Englishman, the foreword for the book is written by Morley's former coach, Ricky Stuart.


"I was humbled by what Ricky wrote," he said.


"Ricky and I got on really well, he was a hard but fair and now as well as an ex-coach he is a great friend."


Morley speaks with great excitement about the Roosters season ahead, further confirming his love for the club.


"I always check out the Roosters results," he said.


"Robbo has been a great addition to the club and adds a lot, while the signing of SBW is great for both the Chooks and the game."


"I am really excited for the year ahead, I have all my fingers crossed for us."
