Moore keeping a lid on Halifax expectations

Halifax’s veteran front rower Richard Moore is refusing to get too excited, after his team produced a fine win at the weekend.

Fax now head into this weekend’s Summer Bash on the back of 60-18 thrashing of Whitehaven, but Moore is refusing to get carried away.

“We can’t get too excited,” he said.

“No disrespect to Whitehaven, but they’re down near the bottom of the table and we’ve not beaten a team above us so far.

“The fans are great. They really get behind us. The lads mentioned it when they stood in the pouring rain at Odsal.

“I like the idea of the Summer Bash, too. Having played in a few Magic Weekends, I thought it was great to see fans from every club at one venue watching games over the weekend.

“Hopefully we can be the team to knock Bradford off their perch and start a charge towards finishing in the top four.”

The prop forward will be facing Bradford at Blackpool this weekend, one of his former clubs.

The clash with the Bulls will bring the Saturday of the Summer Bash to an exciting close, and Moore is relishing the chance to play against his former club on a bigger stage.

“It’s my old club, so I’m really looking forward to facing them at Blackpool this weekend,” he said.

“I always get excited whenever I face one of my former teams, but I treat it as though it’s a normal game.

“I don’t change my preparation but this game against the Bulls will be very exciting given that it’s at the Blackpool for the first time.”
