Brett Morris turned back the clock on Friday night and stunned the NRL world with an incredible double play, which was reminiscent of his famous Origin moment in 2014.
The 33 year old winger left his teammates and coach in awe on Friday after his double tackle in the first half helped lift the Roosters over the Rabbitohs in an enthralling encounter.

With the Roosters holding onto a 12-0 lead, Morris chased down both Braidon Burns and Alex Johnston in one play.
He then tripled it up, making a tackle from behind on the very next play before rushing back to bat a ball out in the in-goal later in the set.
"Most guys with speed will get the first guy," Roosters coach Trent Robinson said.
"But then to keep moving and get the next one and then another play on the line. That takes something more than speed.
"It was amazing to watch."
Morris winds back clock
For most, that defence would be a once-in-a-lifetime type effort.
But Morris has made his career on them.
In 2014 he created headlines for pulling off a match-saving tackle for NSW in the State of Origin series opener, holding up Darius Boyd with his dislocated shoulder.
Fans flocked to Twitter and went wild over the extraordinary play from veteran.

Brett Morris, seriously. That was as good as his effort in Origin I back in 2014. Unbelievable. #NRLRoostersSouths— Scott Bailey (@ScottBaileyAAP) May 29, 2020

What about the defensive plays by Brett Morris in that last set? Brilliant! @NRLonNine— Peter Psaltis (@peterp79) May 29, 2020
It's part of the reason why he has fit so well into the Roosters' system, after joining the club aged 32 last year.
"He can buy into us, but when you recruit a senior guy like a Josh or Brett, you want to see traits that you see already that will adapt really quickly," Robinson said.
"So you don't try and mould them into something new.
"We went after them because we saw guys who you see character in and stuff that will adapt quickly.
"That's why we were happy with Josh coming after a few rounds (from Cronulla this year), because we want to learn off them as much as they can learn off us."
