Coach Paul Green on Michael Morgan’s comeback from off-season surgery:

“He’s returned earlier than expected tonight. He wasn’t expected to play for probably a week or two so it’s a credit to him for the work he’s done in the pre-season.

“He had a shoulder operation and also an ankle operation and I thought he looked really sharp out there tonight. He had some good touches with the footy and also carried the ball strongly.

“It was very pleasing and good for Michael too for his own confidence.”
