Taree product who made his debut in the Panthers second ever premiership match in 1967, against Newtown at Penrith Park.

Alternating between centre and five-eighth, he was the Panthers first representative player, first of all for City Seconds in 1968 and then later for New South Wales in 1970. Whilst further representative honours would elude him, he would continue to provide an experienced head to the Panthers into the early to mid-1970s.

In 1973, he became the first Penrith player to rack up 100 first grade appearances for the club.

Moran would retire at the end of the 1974 season.

He would later be honoured by being named at centre in the Team of Legends to commemorate the club’s 40th anniversary in 2006, and later be one of the four initial inductees in the Hall of Fame in 2016 to mark its 50th season.
