Hooker Moore is the latest player to join Bulls

FORMER England hooker Scott Moore has been given the chance to resurrect his career with Bradford Bulls.

Released from Wakefield Trinity by “mutual consent” last month, he has been seeking a fresh start in the sport.

Moore, arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and theft in October and bailed until March 10, has been handed a four-game trial at Championship strugglers Bradford.

They are desperate to bolster their ranks after seeing their squad decimated by liquidation and the 29-year-old will add some much needed experience.

Moore made 19 appearances for Wakefield after initially joining on loan from Castleford Tigers in 2015.

However, it was with St Helens and, later, Huddersfield Giants where he enjoyed most success., eventually earning England representation and a move to NRL club North Queensland Cowboys.

He has consistently failed to settle, though, and will be looking to make up for lost time at Odsal.

Moore could debut against Swinton Lions on Sunday.

Meanwhile, former Bradford hooker Adam O’Brien has joined Halifax from Huddersfield on a one month loan.

He only joined the Fartowners on a three-year deal from Odsal last month after Bulls hit those financial issues.

O’Brien is still yet to make his competitive debut for Huddersfield with coach Rick Stone preferring Australian Ryan Hinchcliffe and youngster Kruise Leeming for their opening two Super League games.

However, the 23-year-old – who hails from Halifax – will now link up with the Championship part-timers for the next four weeks. He is set to make his debut in their league fixture with Sheffield Eagles on Sunday.

“Being a local lad I bit at the chance,” said O’Brien.

“It’s a massive buzz for me to play for my home side after so long at Bradford and I’m proud to be a homegrown talent.”

O’Brien’s arrival comes as a big boost to Halifax, who are currently without injured hookers Ben Kaye and Brandon Moore.

Huddersfield managing director Richard Thewlis said: “Rick Stone is keen wherever possible to get his senior squad in action week in, week out and with a full-time squad of 31 this is quite a challenge.

“This allows Adam to continue his development in a highly-competitive environment.”
