Junior Moors spills all on his injury troubles at Castleford Tigers

Junior Moors carved out quite the reputation for himself at Castleford Tigers during his six seasons at the club.

Having joined the Castleford Tigers back in 2015, Moors established himself as one of the most impressive forwards in the game with some bulldozing runs and hard-hitting defence.

But, the Samoan international – who now plies his trade for Castleford’s bitter Yorkshire rivals Featherstone Rovers – has revealed just how tough it became after 2017 with injuries piling up.

“I played my best year in 2016, I was injured at the start but then played the rest of the season injury free,” Moors revealed on the Talk Your Walk podcast.

“I walked out on the field thinking I was the best player on the field and I had so much belief.

“2017 started off just as well – my belief was still there, but I was rocked by an injury to my knee which kept me out for eight weeks.

“I came back at the end of the year but I was underdone – I knew I hadn’t put in the work as I didn’t train for eight weeks.”

Moors went on to reveal that things went from bad to worse.

“Then 2018 I just got injury after injury, it was tough and hard to fight that.

“I believed in myself but my body wasn’t really coping – I wanted my body to do what my mind wanted to do.”
