Castleford Tigers sign Melbourne Storm forward Junior Moors

Castleford Tigers have signed Melbourne Storm forward Junior Moors on a three-year contract.

The 27-year-old Samoa international will join up with the Tigers ahead of the 2015 season.

Coach Daryl Powell told BBC Radio Leeds: "When I knew he was available we moved pretty quickly to get him on board.

"I think his style is going to be really well-suited to the Super League and he'll be a real threat."

Moors played three games for Samoa at last year's World Cup and scored his first international try in a 22-6 victory over France.  

Powell added: "I watched him play in the World Cup and he's got a lot of ability with the ball as well as defensively.

"He has a good chance here with a club that is hopefully going places."
