WARRINGTON coach Paul Cullen wants Adrian Morley to be himself when the Great Britain hard man returns to Super League action tonight - and to the scene of his biggest disgrace.
The former Leeds second rower, dubbed "the enforcer" thanks to his combative nature on the field, is back in England after a successful six-year stint in Australia's National Rugby League (NRL) and will make his eagerly-awaited Wolves debut in front of a 20,000-plus crowd at Wigan.
Morley's only competitive action in the last six months has been for Great Britain, after his season with Sydney Roosters was ended prematurely by a seven-week suspension - the last of 11 separate bans imposed for foul play in the NRL.
The 29-year-old Salfordian, below, insists the "slate is wiped clean" on his return to Britain, but an opening visit to Wigan is sure to rekindle unhappy memories.
He picked up a three-match ban following his only previous Super League start at the JJB Stadium, a 20-6 defeat with Leeds in the second match of the 2000 season.
It was also at the JJB Stadium where Morley was sent off just 12 seconds into the opening Ashes Test of 2003, for a swinging arm on Australia prop Robbie Kearns.
Cullen remains unconcerned by Morley's past, but admits his style of play reminds him of another tough guy - former Australia prop Les Boyd, who made 86 appearances for Warrington from 1985-89.
"I have no more worries about Adrian than I have about Jon Wilkin or Keith Mason or any other player who has found himself in trouble with authority over the past few seasons," said Cullen.
"I am always wary of saying this, but there is a Les Boyd-ism to Adrian Morley. He's an absolute gentleman off the field - and a very determined character on it.
"The image he has sometimes belies the quality of the character that is the man himself.
"We know what we've bought - and we want a little bit more from Adrian Morley. He comes with a reputation, so one thing that gets overlooked is his ability to play football."
