Powell believes Moors can add power to Cas

Castleford Tigers have signed Samoan international Junior Moors on a three-year contract, beginning at the start of next season.

Tigers coach Daryl Powell is certain that the 6’4″, 17 stone Samoan international can bring size and skill to the Cas back row.

The 27-year-old Moors scored one try in three games for Samoa at the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. He is currently playing in the NRL with Melbourne Storm, and has played more than 50 NRL games for them, Wests Tigers and Penrith Panthers.

He also played for Storm when they beat Leeds to win the World Club Challenge at Headingley.

“He’s a player that came to my attention midway through the season,” Powell explained.

“He’s a big skilful player, a back rower. When I knew he was available we moved pretty quickly to get him on board,

“I think his style and the wy he playe is going to be really well suited for the Super League competition.

“He’ll have a really successful stay with the Tigers.

“He’s a real big human being. His skill sets and the way he plays will be a real threat to opposition defences.

“We’re looking forward to getting him highly motivated and enjoying what he’s doing.

“I think he’ll slot in pretty well.

“I watched him play a couple of times. He’s got a lot of ability with the ball, and his work rate is pretty good defensively.

“He’s got a good opportunity to come here to a club which is really going places.”
