Former England international Scott Moore has now been released from prison and he could well return to rugby league in 2019.
Scott Moore was repeatedly hit with a 50,000-volt stun gun but got back to his feet to charge at police.
The 30-year-old, who became the youngest ever Super League player when he played for St Helens aged just 16, fought off officers who struggled to arrest him for 50 minutes.
At one point, an officer had him in a headlock and delivered a stun directly to his body but Moore was still able to fight them off.
He grabbed the wires from the Taser, which had been deployed, and ripped them from his body. Moore then managed to grab the weapon, pointing it in the face of one officer, and shouted: “You’re getting it now!”
The terrified officer fought with Moore to release it from his hand and another officer struck him numerous times. He eventually dropped the Taser and following a further struggle was finally detained.
Moore, of Lowton, Greater Manchester, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and three counts of assault. He was jailed for one year and 11 months on Tuesday and disqualified from driving for two years.
Moore has now been released and it believed he wants to make a return to the sport and a couple of clubs in Super League and Championship are willing to take a punt on the hooker for next season.
