Skippy Ties His Kangaroo Down!

The Australian defender has only played three Premiership games for the Magpies, and some say he has never settled at the club. So it is no surprise he says he is looking to a return to Brisbane, his home town, and sign for Queensland Roar in Australia's A-League.

Moore: "When my contract is up at Newcastle I will be heading home to Australia. I'll live in Brisbane.

"I'll have been in Europe for 14 or 15 years and it will be time to go back and get my family settled in Australia. I think seven or eight Australians who are playing over here would say the same.

"The weather is a big factor, but the A-League is a success and it will boost the league further if players who have been playing at a high level here in Europe go back."
