Joel Moon ready for Super League action after surgery

Leeds centre Joel Moon is keen to get into action once the 2015 Super League season gets underway.

The 26-year-old Queenslander has had operations on both knees during the close season, and is looking forward to being part of the main squad once again.

“Everyone’s good and ready for the season,” he told Love Rugby League.

“I’ve been in the rehab group for pretty much the whole of preseason, so I’m just looking forward to getting back with the boys at the start of the season.

“I had an operation on both knees, and had a bit of cleaning out done. It’s not too serious, just a bit of maintenance.”

Leeds won the Challenge Cup last season, but failed to find much spark once the play-offs were underway at the end of the year.

Moon is confident that the Rhinos can perform consistently over the whole season this year, however, with the club keen on adding to its extensive list of trophies.

“I guess one of the best traits this club has is that it’s always got motivation to win, and look to improve on each year,” he said.

“I think all the boys are raring to go. We want to get back to Wembley, and end the season better than we did last year.”

The centre also believes that Super League‘s restructure will offer fans more entertainment, as well as making things more intense for players.

“It should be good,” he said.

“It’ll be healthy for the competition that every team has to play hard each week. There’ll be some good games on this year, and it’ll be tough.

“We’re always trying to win each week, so it won’t change our focus too much. I guess it’s just about doing the same as we already do.

“If we play well, we’ll be there.”

As well as Moon, Leeds have an array of great talent in their backline, with the likes of Ryan Hall, Kallum Watkins, Tom Briscoe and Zak Hardaker offering spark and deadliness in spades.

Moon is looking forward to competing for a starting spot alongside some of Super League‘s top stars again in 2015.

“There’s some great players here, and to play with them just helps your game massively,” he said.

“It also keeps you on your toes, and you know that you’ve got to compete and play well to be in the team.

“It’s a healthy environment for the team.”
