Huddersfield Giants sign ex-Widnes hooker Scott Moore

Huddersfield Giants have signed hooker Scott Moore on a deal until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old was sacked by Widnes last week for an unspecified breach of club discipline.

Moore, who joined the Vikings from St Helens in the winter, had a loan spell at the Galpharm earlier in his career.

Giants boss Nathan Brown said: "Scotty was great for us in my first year here and it will be good to get him back into our environment.

He added: "He 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."

Meanwhile, forward Jacob Fairbank has agreed a contract extension until 2015.

Fairbank, 22, is currently out with a wrist injury but should be available for selection from early May.
