Surely that's just natural progression and could have happened at many clubs.  Bit like Saints fans claiming Walmsley only improved cos they signed him.

You think a coach has that little input on a player’s development? 

I would argue that’s a long way from reality

He means he's a Wakey fan and begrudges Cas any praise

Precisely, you can see who are the better/best coaches as they bring through talent and continue to improve them, a great coach improves players who are already doing very nicely when they get to work with them.

Getting your charges to play precisely as you want them to do to deliver the end result as often/consistently as possible is also something that shows up good coaching/good man management, there's certainly a few coaches that maximise what they have roster wise and there's certain coaches who under-perform regularly.

Losing players you've brought through/improved to 'bigger' clubs is always a perennial problem.

Just look at what Ryan Carr has done with the mish mash of players at his disposal

 Not just Powell either. People too often focus on the head coach but it surely helps having Ryan Sheridan and Danny Orr in the coaching team. If you’re a half, you should jump at the chance of joining Cas. Look at the improvement of Trueman

That seems good business by cas for a guy in his 30s who’s spent a lot of the last two years injured ... although I’m not sure Richardson is the solution

Do clubs get insurance money if players are long term injured? Cas have suffered because of these injuries. 

So of course has the player.  Good luck to him in the circumstances, I don't think he is doing much wrong in looking for a change. It's not his fault if (if) he turns out to have lost quality and age in tbe ladt 2 years.

Money is ok for Cas, but what is needed is players.

I mean you've listed pretty much all the ones with off field issues....are you trying to imply something? 

I only ask as you've omitted the likes of Peacock, Sculthorpe, Houghton, Brough, Graham, Roby....the list goes on.

no mate, just recent ones seem under a hex either with injury, lack of form or whatever.

Geez I feel sorry for Gale, if you believe half the posts he's finished!

Why is he a crock all of a sudden?

He was the best 7 in SL, England's first choice, Dream Team 3 or 4 years on the bounce and Man of Steel! 

He is not so much reliant on his athletic ability but rather what is between his ears.

Unless he breaks down, which we have no reason to believe he will, then why would he not return at the same standard?

Widdop at Wolves is a much bigger gamble (one which I'd still go for) as he is more reliant on his physical attributes, is also the wrong side of 30 and does have somewhat of a fragile body.

If Cas are happy with the fee, great. World/International class halves don't grow on trees. 

I see no reason why Gale wont have the same effect on Leeds that Hardaker did on Cas in 17, Barba on Saints 18 and Hastings did this year at Salford.

Hardaker was in his prime when he joined cas, barba and hastings  are a gulf apart in class and skill to gale if not more, any more reasons?
