Giants consider Moore move
Huddersfield could throw a career lifeline to former St Helens hooker Scott Moore, who was sacked by Widnes Vikings last week.
The 24-year-old Moore, who played the best rugby of his career during a season on loan at the Giants in 2009, joined the Vikings from home-town club St Helens at the start of the season but had his contract torn up just six matches into a three-year deal.
Huddersfield last week lost hooker or half-back Tommy Lee for up to four months with a knee injury and coach Nathan Brown admits he could be tempted to sign Moore as a straight replacement.
"We possibly could be," said Brown, when asked at Sunday's post-match press conference following his side's 42-16 Challenge Cup win at Hull.
"We've got a good affiliation with Scotty. He did a great job for us when he was with us."
While at Huddersfield in 2009, Moore played in a Challenge Cup final at Wembley, was included in the Super League Dream Team and made his England debut against France.
However, Moore blotted his copybook with the Giants by getting himself suspended for missing training to attend an awards night in London with actor Micky Rourke.
"One little incident apart, we couldn't fault him," Brown added. "He was good.
"Scotty just needs guidance and direction. He needs a bit of care and he needs to get away from where he lives.
"He's like a lot of young kids. I've got a brother the same. They hang around some of their mates and they get in trouble.
"If you get them away from it, sometimes you can guide them a little bit. Scotty is no different. He's a good young kid who just needs some guidance and a bit of love and care."
