Cas have “moved on” from Carney issue, says Powell

Castleford Tigers coach Daryl Powell has insisted his team have moved on from the suspension of winger Justin Carney after last night’s defeat to Huddersfield.

Carney looks set to have played his last game for the club after being suspended, with Powell revealing afterwards that the disciplinary procedure is reaching its conclusion.

And he said that what matters now is the players who are playing for the club, and praised them for the way they applied themselves during the 40-26 loss.

“The disciplinary is coming to a point where it will hopefully be finalised,” Powell said.

“For us, we’ve moved on, we’re getting on with it. It’s about the players who are on the field and the people that are important to us. The boys are cracking on and it’s testament to them.”

Powell was also quick to praise the effort from his side, saying: “The boys are pretty disappointed about the result but the unity of the team is pretty evident to see.

“We had a bit of illness in the camp as well – Olly Holmes couldn’t play and Adam Milner had not trained all week until yesterday – but the boys were awesome. It was a pretty special effort in the circumstances.”
