Biography

Moore was a ruckman who was a nightmare for opposition tall men. He was 6’6 and could run like a hare. He was remarkably agile for a big man and had great ball-handling skills.

He joined Collingwood from Eltham and in his early days in the seniors was used at full-forward with spectacular success.

Moore took over the No.1 ruckman role on a full-time basis in 1979 when Len Thompson left the club and won the 1979 Brownlow.

Two years later he was made captain, and although the captaincy enhanced his play the wheels began to fall off when he carried a hamstring injury into the grand final and looked patently unfit.

In a big dollar deal Moore went to Melbourne and won another Brownlow Medal in 1984.

Injuries restricted him in the closing couple of years of his career.

He won the Collingwood best and fairest in 1979 and 1980.
