Moore faces several weeks out

Wakefield hooker Scott Moore is unlikely to be available for the start of Super League XXI after suffering a bicep injury against Leeds.

Moore ruptured his bicep in the first half of the friendly victory over the Rhinos on Boxing Day.

Wakefield coach Brian Smith believes the rake will be pushing to be right for the Wildcats first game of the season, a home match against Widnes on February 7.

“Scotty’s one of those guys who’s hard to rattle,” Smith said.

“You can say almost anything to him and he’ll turn it around to suit himself.

“He just said to me at half-time ‘at least I did it now, I’ll be back ready for the start of the season’.

“I think he’s pushing it a bit there, but he sees the bright side of things sometimes at least.”

Moore staged a remarkable recovery from a bicep complaint at the end of the 2015 season to return for the Million Pound game, scoring the winning try that sealed Wakefield’s Super League status for 2016.

The luckless 27-year old hurt his other bicep against Leeds.

Moore tweeted after that match: “Sport hurts! Miffed that the bicep has gone #rupture hopefully get back for round 1”.
