Dogfather, try reading mine (You failed to mention or acknowledge stats) - the stats are not 'opinions' as you say, they are historical facts recorded by the governing body. Everyone will have different opinions and thats fine, but the stats don't lie.
As for back to back finals your 100% correct playing for a team that dominated at that time where there was expectation, and not like playing for 'Little Batley' who weren't supposed to get anywhere near finals...
I will again supply you with some more 'facts' and not stuff you may read on here or what you may get told down the pub.
Ok so to the Halifax situation - Moore was top try scorer last season with 21 tries Including Cup games so if you reckon that means not good enough then you must be right ..... He told them he had had enough of the commitments required from him as far as time spent at the club, travel and training etc, and it was also affecting his business commitments, and also was dictating his private life, his lifestyle and he was not seeing his young child. He told Halifax he was taking time out to see how he felt as he was considering retirement, as did Luke Ambler at the same time for the very same reasons. Connor Robinson also left in that period for the same reasons and went to York. Didn't you find it rather strange all these players left in mid season ?
He did not train, play or go to the club for over 6 weeks - he was not left out or injured as the club may or may not have reported or told people. That is how clubs work which I am sure you know....... I mean would you leave out the clubs pivot and top try scorer really ? or as in Amblers case the top metre making forward at the club ?
You should maybe ask why Bradford, Toronto and London all tried to sign him for last season - all were turned down due to being full time clubs which he didn't want due to business commitments. It appears as though the people that matter and have far more knowledge than you or I seem to think differently also. The same applies to dewsbury who were looking for someone to hopefully get them out of a hole, ask there fans opinions on him.
Anyway after the 6 weeks+ he took the decision to retire and to look after his business interests and spend more time with his family. Dewsbury were already monitoring the situation, and as you know were in deep trouble at the bottom of the table staring at relegation and immediately made him an offer that he could not turn down. At that point Halifax then decided they wanted a Transfer fee for him and this was paid to them as they were not going to release his registration to sign for Dewsbury. The club as usual did not go public and state any of this and simply announced he was being transferred to Dewsbury for a fee.
so anyway thats just a 'factual' explanation to your theory of Halifax deeming him not good enough.
