Moore released by Leeds

Leeds have released prop Richard Moore from the remaining year of his contract to enable him to sign for another club.

Moore, 31, re-joined the Rhinos from Welsh side Crusaders in 2012, having originally been part of the club’s academy system.

Head Coach Brian McDermott said: “Richard leaves the Rhinos with the best wishes of everyone at the club. He has been a great servant to Leeds over the last two seasons, always prepared to help out the team wherever possible and having made 16 appearances in both seasons it shows the contribution he has made. 

“His attitude has been first class, including spending time at Hunslet this season on dual registration where he was also a popular figure. We appreciate his desire to secure more gametime and wish him well for the future.”

Moore made 32 appearances for Leeds, scoring one try.

He previously played for London Broncos, Bradford, Leigh and Wakefield.

Moore said: “It was always an ambition of mine to play for the Rhinos first team having started my career at Headingley Carnegie and I am pleased to have done that. It has been a great experience for me and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my career next season.”
