Moore in following prison release
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.
