Castleford Tigers sign Samoa international Moors

Castleford Tigers has announced the signing of Samoan international Junior Moors on a three-year contract from the beginning of next season.

The 27-year-old, who scored one try in three 2013 Rugby League World Cup games for Samoa, will link up with the Tigers when his deal with NRL side Melbourne Storm expires at the end of the year.

A back-row with more than 50 NRL games under his belt with Storm, Wests Tigers and Penrith Panthers, Moors will add more competition and power to the Tigers’ forward pack.

Moors joined Storm ahead of the 2013 NRL campaign and went on to make 10 appearances, as well being a part of the side that claimed a World Club Challenge win over Leeds Rhinos at Headingley.

He also played an instrumental role in Melbourne’s New South Wales Cup feeder side Cronulla Sharks during the second half of the season when he scored the winning try in the Premiership Grand Final.

“He’s a big, physical player who has got great skill sets and he’s been in and around the Melbourne team for the last couple of years.

“Grant Millington has spent a little bit of time with him and quite a few of our guys know of him and what he’s about as a player.

“He’s played about 50 NRL games and he’s going to be really well suited to the conditions in Super League and I think he’s going to fit in outstandingly well.”
