NRL Star Josh Morris Calls Out Vile Social Media Abuse

Just hours after Josh Morris helped the Sydney Roosters to an emphatic 40-6 win over the Wests Tigers, he found himself in the firing line of some truly awful online abuse.

Morris took to social media after the game to post a screenshot of a vile message he had received from a rugby league fan.

And, well, it's disgusting to say the least.

In the Instagram message, it reads: "F**k you you dog c**t, you f****d my multi, I'm out in front of Leumeah Stadium waiting for your bus to rock up, wait till you walk out of the back door, you won't know what hit ya."

Charming, right?

For the caption, Morris simply said: "Great to get the win today with the lads but honestly this stuff needs to stop.

"WE DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR MULTIS."

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time rugby league players - or Aussie athletes in other codes for that matter - have been subject to this kind of treatment on social media.

In recent years, athletes have tried to combat the issue by sharing screenshots of abusive messages they've received.

But with no serious repercussions for the culprits, it seems like sports stars are being abused online on a weekly basis nowadays.

As for the game itself, the Roosters were in fine form against the winless Tigers.

Morris' twin brother Brett bagged a sensational hat-trick to put the Chooks top of the NRL ladder with a whopping 76 points difference total after just two games.

And while Josh didn't manage to get on the scoresheet himself, he was still instrumental in helping the Roosters to their second consecutive 40 plus scoring game this NRL season.
