BIOGRAPHY

Gary Moorby by Dave Dooley:

This strong-running, try-scoring second rower cost St.Helens a record £37,000 fee from Keighley in 1980/81. Despite success at club level, his inconsistent work-rate undoubtedly cost him international recognition and he moved to Leeds in October 1983 in a straight exchange for prop forward Tony Burke. Gary`s father, Frank also played for Keighley and Gary himself coached the club in 2003.

Gary`s scoring prowess was evident on his debut (15th of November, 1981) when he stormed over for a typical blockbuster try as part of the 20 points to 8 away victory over Bradford Northern. He continued in the same vein as he collected nine tries from 23 outings in his inaugural season. Interestingly, Gary turned out at prop for the last 11 games of that campaign. The 1982/3 stanza saw Gary peak on a couple of occasions. His 13 tries from 34 appearances included a whirlwind four touchdowns in the 27 points to 7 victory over Workington Town on the 26th. of September, 1982. Later in the season he completed a hat trick against Carlisle as part of a resounding 39 points to 7 win. Gary played just six matches at the start of the next campaign before moving to Leeds in exchange for Tony Burke.
