Fresh off his second hat-trick performance in as many weeks, winger Brett Morris insists that is still plenty of work for the Tricolours ahead of their Round 3 match against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, a fixture which he says always has plenty of heat.  

With the Roosters blowing away the Wests Tigers 40-6 in their Round 2 match, with Morris bringing his try-scoring tally to six for the season, the veteran winger still believes that there is room for improvement for the ladder-leaders. 

"It's always nice to get a win especially at the start of the season," he said.

"We still have a lot of parts of the game we want to improve on, but scoring 40 points and only letting in one try is always nice.

"We're not the complete side - we know that - and we know what we need to do to get better in certain areas.

"That's our focus over the next couple weeks, we still need to iron out a few creases."

Despite having a number of key players out, the Red, White and Blue were able to continue their winning form, with Morris crediting the younger contingent of squad members including the likes of Freddy Lussick and Fletcher Baker who filled in seamlessly.

"You've got to have good depth, and you've got to have guys to step up and fill the void when they're needed," Morris elaborated.

"Something we pride ourselves on here is the 'next-man-up' mentality, and those guys who are stepping into those roles certainly have a job to do and they're doing their jobs really well.

"It'll be nice to get some guys back from injury, but we're not fazed either way. Those guys who've come have the full trust of everyone around them."

The biggest and longest-standing rivalry in Rugby League - one that began in 1908 -  comes together once again on Friday night as the Roosters travel to Stadium Australia to take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

We're two proud clubs and we're very excited about the challenge of coming up against the Bunnies. It's always a tough battle, both sets of fans are very passionate and loyal and love watching that battle.

The veteran winger says that while there is plenty to look forward to for Members and fans alike, the team will be solely focused with the aim of taking home their third win on the trot, and watered down his recent try-scoring feats. 

"There's always fierce battles when we come up against each other," he said of the rivalry with the Rabbitohs.

"We're two proud clubs and we're very excited about the challenge of coming up against the Bunnies. It's always a tough battle, both sets of fans are very passionate and loyal and love watching that battle.

"We'll keep to ourselves, and worry about what we need to do to win this game of footy.

"I don't go out thinking about scoring tries, I go out there to do my job - to be someone that can be relied upon to do their job week-in-week-out and win games of footy.

"Scoring tries is a bonus, it always has been."
