Huddersfield Giants sign ex-Widnes Vikings man Scott Moore and Lunt looks for loan

HUDDERSFIELD Giants have signed ex-Widnes Vikings hooker Scott Moore on a deal until the end of the season.

HUDDERSFIELD Giants have signed ex-Widnes Vikings hooker Scott Moore on a deal until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old England hooker played for the Giants in the 2009 season when he earned an international call up and was named in the Super League Dream Team.

Giants head coach Nathan Brown said he welcomed the chance to get Moore "back into our environment".

He added: "Scott has had a well documented path since and this is a great chance for him to start afresh in a new town and team. He will be very warmly welcomed by us as we know the attributes that he can bring to our team.”

Moore said “I had success here last time and that is the aim for me again. The team is going well and my first challenge will be to get a slot in the side as there is so much quality here in depth.

"I am grateful for the opportunity to put some silly mistakes recently behind me and look forward to repaying the faith that Nathan and the club have in me on and off the field.”

Giants managing director Richard Thewlis said Moore's move meant that other squad changes would now be made due to salary cap considerations.

He added: “Shaun Lunt has been looking for guaranteed game time which we can all see has been limited this year here for him so he will be permitted to move on loan as is his desire and I expect him to shortly announce that he has made arrangements until the end of the season.

"Furthermore I expect more announcements in the next few days in relation to some longer-term squad matters that can now be addressed.”
