Scott Moore: Believes coach Nathan Brown will get the best out of his ability
Huddersfield Giants' new signing Scott Moore is aiming to help the Stobart Super League club reach the Challenge Cup final again.
The 24-year-old hooker is back with the Giants following a short stint with the Widnes Vikings and he is eager to recapture his best form.
Moore helped the Giants reach the final in 2009 where they suffered a 25-16 defeat to the Warrington Wolves during a season-long loan from St Helens.
"Browny's a great and very smart coach, and I felt I adapted well under him a couple of years ago. That's what I intend to do again."
Scott Moore Quotes of the week
The England international was delighted to make his second debut in last weekend's win over the Bradford Bulls and Moore is now looking to topple Swinton on Sunday.
"I'm really looking forward to Sunday already. I just want to get out there and play," Moore commented in the Huddersfield Examiner.
"When I came here last week I never expected to play in the game at Bradford, the cup tie against Swinton was always far more realistic.
"These first few weeks have always been about getting my head down and learning to play with this group of players, and next Sunday's game should be a good one to try and get back up to speed - although I accept it won't be too easy.
"Swinton are a decent side, and the fact we'll be expected to get a lot of points against them adds to the pressure. But, as I said, I can't wait. I'll just go out there, do the best I can and keep on building from there.
"Browny's (Huddersfield head coach Nathan Brown) a great and very smart coach, and I felt I adapted well under him a couple of years ago. That's what I intend to do again.
"I loved my year at the Giants, and I think it's ironic that I'll be making my second debut for the club in a Challenge Cup tie, because getting to the Wembley final with the team back in 2009 was one of the massive highlights.
"The final itself obviously went badly, but from what I've seen since I've been back, I know we're capable of going one better this time around."
