Moore hopeful for March return

Injured wakefield hooker Scott Moore is gunning to get back on the pitch by the end of the March.

Moore hurt his bicep on Boxing Day against Leeds and has not featured for the Wildcats this season as he recovers.

After undergoing surgery, the forward is targeting a return to the field at Easter.

Wakefield are at home to Huddersfield on March 25 and then face Leeds at Headingley on March 28.

“I’m not sure hopefully no longer than another month or so,” he told Love Rugby League.

Wakefield got their first win of the 2016 Super League campaign with a close victory away to Hull KR on Sunday.

“It’s always good to get first win and going there is always tough,” Moore said.

“I don’t think we’re playing overly well yet either, still gelling and finding out our feet a bit with the change over in personnel.”

Moore spent the 2013 season in the NRL with North Queensland, playing six games for the Cowboys. The 28-year old was impressed by North Queensland’s performance in defeating the Rhinos.

“They went good, all the NRL teams did as that’s the comp there,” he said.

“They get in the grind and don’t make hardly any errors, then when the chance comes they take it. I thought the Cowboys’ D was top notch.

“It’s hard to say really [if the gab is widening]. The comp is better over there yes but Saints and Leeds were both missing a lot of personal.

“They just stay in the grind longer and make less errors then eventually one side breaks as did all English teams.

“The comp is flourishing there due to sponsorship and money and obviously the weather there means you can train outside constantly which will always help your skill set.”
