A highly-touted spin bowling allrounder taken at 58 in the pre-season 27 draft, New Zealander Morey was transferred to the Eagles for a price of more than half a million. His honest offspin is best suited to the longer format, and he largely struggled in limited-overs 2nd XI matches, although a five-for on a flat track against Ultimate Mumbai Indians helped boost his confidence. His batting developed over time, and he scored two centuries opening the batting in seasons 32-33. Morey was awarded the 2nd XI captaincy at the age of 19, but gave it up the following season to focus on his game.

Long touted as the heir apparent to long-term spin duo Cherry and Thomson, Morey was trialled successfully as a third spin bowler first in one day games and then, in season 34, in the long format. His three games netted 13 wickets, including a match-winning final-day haul of 5/87 against Too Short For Chess. Morey then played 11 games in season 35 and endured a baptism of fire in doing so, toiling away on several dead pitches: his best figures of 7/207, against Cricket Inc in what turned out to be a winning cause, tells a story in itself, and his season's numbers of 34 wickets at 50 do him a grave injustice.

Morey nonetheless had entrenched himself in the side by this point, and after taking 48 wickets at 37 to go with a brace of centuries in season 36, he finally hit his straps the following season. In a tier 2 league nonetheless offering stiff competition, Morey took 62 wickets at an average under 30, including seven five-wicket hauls, and averaged 45 with the bat, pipping his fancied spin bowling partner, K.A. Naz, for the club best and fairest award. Back in tier 1 for season 38, Morey now has the opportunity to show his exceptional season was no fluke.
