The former St Helens hooker has linked up with the Londoners after being released from the second year of his contract with the North Queensland Cowboys, for whom he made six NRL appearances in 2013.
He is one of 12 new players at the capital club - which also have a new back-room staff and a new home, The Hive Stadium in Barnet.
Relegation returns to Super League this season and the Broncos are thought by some to be strong contenders, having finished second from bottom last season, although Moore insists the players are not really thinking of this.
Looking forward to the challenge ahead, he told Sky Sports: "It's been very crazy, we've had people coming in and out, a bit of a revolving door.
"But we're all getting on on the pitch and we're all getting on off the pitch, which is good. Hopefully we can get a few more come in in the next couple of weeks and obviously get a good cohesion amongst the team and turn some good performances out.
"We just want to play every week and build on our performances and hopefully knock some teams over and roll them.
"It's going to be a long year, it's going to be a tough year - we're under no illusions of that - so we'll just take it week by week and hopefully back end of the year will take care of itself."
First up is Widnes, one of Moore's old clubs, away on Sunday and the 26-year-old is looking forward to pitting himself against the Vikings.
"It's going to be a really tough challenge for us. They've obviously got some talented players there with Kevin Brown and Jon Clarke and a few of the other boys there.
"I've still got a couple of friends there and so hopefully I can put in a good performance there and get one over on my old mates really so it should be a good start to round one."
He admitted it does add extra spice playing against a former employer.
"I think people would be lying if they say it didn't -they always want to bash their mate a little bit and get one over on each other so it's always nice to play against your mates and even better if you get the win."
