Australia and New South Wales Blues wing Brett Morris has ended his representative career at the age of 30.

The Canterbury Bulldogs flyer on Saturday announced he will no longer play on the State of Origin or international stage following NSW's loss to Queensland Maroons in the 2017 series decider at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday.

Morris scored 23 tries in 18 Tests for the Kangaroos and made 15 Origin appearances, but will now focus solely on showcasing his talents for the Bulldogs.

He posted on Instagram: "It was an absolute honour to wear the Blues jersey for one last time. I'm so proud to have been able to represent my state and my family in the toughest arena of all and have now made the decision to retire from rep football.

"I've loved the journey and made so many good friends along the way. Most of all I want to thank my beautiful family for sticking by me through the good times and the bad.

"I wouldn't be where I am today without you and I love you with all my heart."


Morris turned out in all three Origin games for Blues in their latest series loss.
