Former NRL forward signs new deal at Castleford

Junior Moors

Wests Tigers, Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm fans will remember the name, as Junior Moors re-signs with current Super League club, the Castleford Tigers, until the end of the 2019 season.

The 30-year old Samoan international has quickly become a fan favourite among the Castleford faithful with strong running and solid hitting in defence becoming a focal point of his play.

With over 50 NRL games to his name, Moors joined the club at the start of the 2015 season and started to find his feet at the back end of that year.

2016 has seen him reborn, becoming a potent player for the Castleford side in their quest for success.

Winning Fans Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and Player of the Year at the awards nights a few weeks ago, his success has been noticeable and the man himself is pleased to stay at the club.

“I’m really happy to have extended my deal with Cas,” said Moors.

“My family and I are really settled here and I love playing with these boys. 2017 will be a big season for us and I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead.”

Moors drew praise from coach Daryl Powell, who has seen the forward turn into a destructive player on the field.

“I’m delighted that Junior has agreed to extend his contract with the club,” said Powell.

“After a slow start in 2015 he had an enormous 2016, being one of the best forwards in Super League. His ball carry and his ability with his skill as a forward gives us an extra dimension in our game.

I have no doubt that he will continue to improve and we will see the very best of Junior Moors in the next few years.”
