If that gets confirmed I'll be absolutely made up with that. I'll still be desperately unhappy this season every time we put in a poor performance, I still feel its a write off this year personally.

Shrugs shoulders in a massive feeling of underwhelmment.

I've not been as disappointed since Alex Murphy promised us a "top class coach", and we ended up with DVDV

Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

How did I know you'd be the first....
Who was my choice....probably Wane (bar the reputation for thuggery and bland play), BUT, he's a WINNER. Almost seems like a dirty word in British sport.

Hope he goes well for you. He's been a massive part of improving Cas and leaves with the thanks of most of our supporters.
The massive question mark over him is winning big games. We've put in some abject performances in finals, semi-finals and play-off games.

He’s been finding talent and selling them to keep the club solvent, and competitive. That’s record speaks for itself.
Very happy that Wane and his thuggery wasn’t on our radar. Wane did say he hadn’t been in contact with Wire over the vacancy.

Wane won with Wigan, doesn't mean he will win it with anyone else! Tony Smith won it with Leeds but that didn't bring us the trophy did it? If Powell had been at saints or Wigan over the last 10 years or so he would have won it before as well IMO but regardless previous experience of winning the superleague trophy is not essential and means absolutely nothing in terms of our future chances. Tony Smith got the Leeds job having never won superleague BTW, so Leeds aren't looking at trophy cabinets as cvs and it's working fine for them.

Powell is a great choice for us. The chances of us winning superleague are no less with Powell than they would be with Wane IMO. Main difference is that Powell is more likely to bring us a playing style that will make us want to get to the hj as often as we can. Motivate this group of players to enjoy their rugby, give them the freedom to play and we will have a team to be proud of and a great chance of winning trophies.

Your spot on with that Powell has turned a bunch of journey men players into a good team with a small budget I think it’s a great choice
