This is true. But still presenting an opinion as fact is never good, particularly when it’s easy to pull apart (and others were also there/can see it!)

I saw OLC's post in one of the threads yesterday which highlighted that Daryl Powell may have taken Cas as far as he can, well I thought I'd expand on it: https://uk.blastingnews.com/sport/2018/ ... 77463.html

And despite all of that only two teams have lost less matches than our apparently failing team and both of them with an intact spine as have the other ‘form’ team Warrington.

Don’t get me wrong.
I’d be devestated if he ever left.
He must be frustrated though.
He’s been at the club 5 years with 1 trophy. Yes he’s took us to 2 finals, but it means nothing if you come away a loser.
I hope he’s happy and content at the club and wants to stay for many more years, but he must go home after games and want to kick the cat/dog/hamsters or whatever.
The man is classed as a top coach in the rugby league world, not winning or getting to finals won’t be doing his credibility any good from the outside.

He's always said he's wanted to win a trophy with Cas before he moves on - and I mean a proper trophy.

Also, there's lots of negative articles appearing. How about a different spin of how Powell is still managing to have a competitive side and keep games close (the only blow out is Saints) despite losing the spine of his team:

No FB
No first choice halves
Hooker now moved into halves, as well as losing two wingers.

How can you say Aston has backfired when he hasn't played a game? He was never ear-marked as a starting first teamer.

And again lots of rumours portrayed as facts in this piece, without any real credibility or substance. How do you know Powell was disgruntled? When has Powell said he's frustrated and disgruntled or even appeared those?

Quite frankly, this article screams of taking hissy-fitting from the forum and trying to sensationalise it.

There's no hope so. He turned down the England job to stay at Cas earlier this year.

Agree - After the Hull game he actually said the opposite - 'I'm so proud of what we did here today'
