Moore in fol­low­ing prison re­lease

Middleton Guardian - - SPORT -

ROCHDALE Hor­nets have an­nounced the sign­ing of ex­pe­ri­enced Su­per League and NRL star Scott Moore fol­low­ing his re­lease from prison.

The ex-Eng­land hooker, 30, was jailed for 23 months in March af­ter driv­ing a car at 150mph in a po­lice chase and crash­ing into a house in Leigh.

Carl Forster was im­per­a­tive in bring­ing Scott to the club, with the two cross­ing paths dur­ing their ca­reers.

“Scott is a great cap­ture for us,” he said.

“We’ve beaten off com­pe­ti­tion to bring him in and I’m de­lighted he’s cho­sen us.

“His qual­ity is un­ques­tion­able and his ex­pe­ri­ence will be huge. It’s my job to get the best out of him and I’m con­fi­dent I’ll do that.”

Moore has pre­dom­i­nantly played as a hooker dur­ing his ca­reer but can pro­vide cover in the halves and at loose for­ward.

He started his ca­reer at St He­lens and spent seven years at the club be­fore spells at Castleford, Widnes and Hud­der­s­field, where he was named into the 2009 Su­per League Dream Team.

Scott then headed down un­der to ply his trade at North Queens­land Cow­boys.

On his re­turn to the UK, Moore signed at Lon­don Bron­cos be­fore mov­ing on to Castleford, Wake­field and Brad­ford.
