Powell is clearly the best coach in SL. What he's done at Cas with a small core of calibre departing players, loan signings and others' cast-offs is nothing short of remarkable.
Are you seriously suggesting that such a coach will stay at a team that is hanging on to its very existence by a thread while all of his best players are sold from under him when he could be at a big side? It's a preposterous suggestion. Like Cas' best players he sees the position as a stepping stone and why shouldn't he? That is the system that you all promote and celebrate.
Bookmark this thread. He'll be at Saints, Wigan, Leeds, Wire, Salford or Hull FC inside 2 years. Whichever job becomes available first, basically. I'll go with Hull FC.
Of course at this point Cas' fans will be on here putting on a positive spin. "We'd like to thank him for his efforts", "A change might serve the club well" etc.
The dwindling fans of these little SL sides are nothing if not a hardy, optimistic bunch, I will give them that.
I will bookmark this thread, great idea.
when you're wrong will you please promise to never come on here again? There's a good chap
Speaking after the game at the KC Stadium, McDermott said, "I thought our supporters were outstanding at the KC Stadium last night. Their reception and appreciation for Richard Horne on his final game before retirement was exemplary and singing for Gareth Ellis, even after he had scored against us, shows what a special club we have. Contrast that with the abuse that Tom Briscoe received throughout the game and I think it shows the class of our supporters.
"Even when the momentum turned against us, they did everything they could to try and lift the side and it was bitterly disappointing that we could not get the win for them. It was interesting at the end that Hull did a lap of honour but were soon off the pitch in contrast to our own lap of thanks a fortnight ago after the heartbreaking loss to Saints. Some of our players didn't leave the field until nearly midnight which shows the special bond between our players and our fans."
Whatever way you look at it Trinity have come on leaps and bounds under Webster and have to be congratulated
From a Cas perspective, I'm in dreamland - the possibility of us winning the LLS is far beyond any expectations any cas fan could have had and to say I'm proud of the club and players would be a massive understatement.
