He ended the season on a high by captaining the Junior Academy to victory in their Grand Final match against St Helens, in an inspirational performance that saw him score a spectacular try to help secure the win. He was also part of the Rhinos U19 side who took on Australian side Penrith Panthers in the Carnegie Academy World Club Challenge.

Last year he made a further 15 appearances in the academy scoring 11 tries and 20 goals.

This year he has made 13 appearances for the Reserve Academy scoring eight tries and 25 goals playing mainly at scrum half but also recently at hooker.

Before joining the Rhinos Moore played for Middleton and Churwell.
