Castleford Tigers’ Samoan international Junior Moors is in danger of missing the start of the Super League season after picking up a hamstring injury.

New signing Moors added to the Tigers’ injury list when he picked up a knock in training last weekend and has been ruled out of the next two pre-season games at least.

Head coach Daryl Powell explained: “Junior Moors pulled his hamstring on Saturday, which is disappointing after I thought he’d had his best training week of his time at the club.

“He was really starting to look outstanding in terms of what he was doing in the back row. He’s going to be three or four weeks and it’s really disappointing for him because he was really getting in the groove of the way we operate.

“I look forward to seeing him play when he’s back and hopefully it won’t be too long.

“He could miss the opening game against Wakefield, but I don’t know yet. It’s one of those injuries that we’ll have to see how he heals over the next two weeks in particular.”
