The latest in a string of Eagles overlooked outside the club but strongly rated within. Morey's gritty batting and honest offspin is most suited to the longest format, although he has adapted well to the 50 over game in recent years, with his athletic fielding for an allrounder adding another string to his bow. Morey's strength is his ability to complement any attack with his consistent bowling - he has formed an able support to the likes of Thomson, Naz and Key across his career, and is often the sole spinner picked on green pitches - and his ability to function effectively as an extra batsman. His average of 39 is remarkable for an allrounder, and includes eight centuries.

Taken at 58 in the pre-season 27 draft, the New Zealander was transferred to the Eagles for a price of more than half a million. Given his preference for the longer form, he was given some latitude for his struggles in 2nd XI cricket, particularly with the ball, with which he averaged around 40. He even captained the side briefly, but gave up the role to focus on his game. It was expected that Morey would eventually replace one of the current spin duo of Cherry and Thomson, but after receiving some exposure to the top level in 50-over games as a third spinner alongside the two, he surprisingly was picked in that role for three first-class games in season 34. His 13 wickets included a match-winning 5/87 against Too Short For Chess, and the stage was set for Morey to establish himself in the side.

Morey duly played 11 games in season 35, taking just 34 wickets at 50, but playing an important containing role on several extremely flat pitches. His performances included a career-best 7/207 against Cricket Inc in what was ultimately a winning cause. Entrenched in the side ever since, Morey has played attacking and containing roles as the team has required. Highlights have included back-to-back club best and fairest awards in seasons 37 and 38 - the former for a career-best 62 wickets at under 30. He subsequently broke the 50-wicket mark again in seasons 39 and 41, and achieved the rare double of a century and 10 wickets in a match against the Dockeroos in season 41.
