Canterbury coach Kevin Moore will delay the decision on a replacement for injured centre Josh Morris until the eve of Sunday’s NRL clash with South Sydney. Morris will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks after suffering a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Monday night’s 24-14 win over the Wests Tigers. “We’re looking at a few blokes,” Moore told reporters on Thursday. “We had three or four guys still recovering from Monday night that didn’t train today so we’ve got a final session on Saturday morning and we’ll make a decision depending on how those blokes recover in the next couple of days. “There’s two or three in the mix but rather than toss any names out at the moment, I don’t want to get bloke’s hopes up so we’ll make that decision on Saturday.” The Dogs bolstered the depth in their backline in the off-season by signing former St George Illawarra back Michael Lett and ex-Parramatta centre Jonathan Wright, both of whom played in the NSW Cup last weekend. Utility forward Dene Halatau has previously played in the centres, while former half and current benchman Ben Roberts may also be considered. NSW Cup centre Daniel Rauicava is another to have had a run in the top grade in 2010. Canterbury named an otherwise unchanged line-up this week for the ANZ Stadium showdown with the Rabbitohs
