Biography

Mobile, Queensland-born forward actually represented NSW U'17s while at high school in Tenterfield before coming to Norths in 1989. Moore was first selected in Queensland's State of Origin side in 1992 and was the sole try-scorer in the Maroons' 5-4 win at Lang Park in the second match of the series. He was a mainstay of the Queensland side for three seasons and became part of State of Origin folklore by calling out ‘Queenslander! Queenslander!’ to motivate an underdog Maroons team in 1995. Against all expectations, Queensland won the series without its star Super League players and while Moore was initially overlooked for Test duty against NZ, he won a place in Australia’s World Cup squad at the end of the year. He made one Test appearance in the competition, against Sth Africa, before playing Tests against Fiji (1996) and Rest of the World (1997) in consecutive years. Moore's value for Norths can be measured by the fact that the club failed to fire in the 1994 final against Canberra after he was forced to leave the field with concussion. He continued to play tirelessly for his club in subsequent semi-final campaigns but his rep career ended when he was left out of the Queensland team for the 1998 series. At the end of 1999, Moore failed to secure a contract with the merged N’Eagles club and reluctantly retired.
