Dewsbury Rams scrum-half Gareth Moore believes he can maintain top form for the club while ever he’s enjoying his rugby.

And the former Halifax man says he’s loving life at the Rams, ahead of the new campaign.

The 28-year-old was a key part of Neil Kelly’s side last year and one of the main factors behind Dewsbury’s revival.

“I showed last year that when I am enjoying playing that I can play my best rugby, and I am loving it here,” said Moore.

“Neil lets me play how I want to play, and hopefully I can produce some good form going into next season.”

Following a slow start to the 2017 campaign, Moore is eager for the club to create a better platform for itself this time around.

“I think we need to get off to a good start. The team didn’t win for six or seven games, which was disappointing for the lads.

“We have spoken about taking it game by game this time around, and not getting too far ahead of ourselves.

“But that first game against Sheffield is still a long way off and so we just need to work hard in pre-season to make sure we are ready for that game.

As standards continue to rise, Moore is predicting that there will be no easy games in 2018.

“It’s getting tougher every year to compete,” he said.

“Especially with sides like Toronto now spending big money. Leigh are going to be up there and Featherstone have signed some good players too.

“But the new lads here have settled in well and we’re confident.

“Obviously, one of this is Rob Worrincy, who I know from my time at Halifax,” Moore added.

“He’s a good professional and I think he’ll bring that professionalism to the younger lads in this squad.”
