Anyone else concerned about the performance of our next coach and his current team?
Since beating us on the 5th June they have lost 6 games on the bounce and including the CCF. Now I know they have less resources than Warrington but this is one of the worst sets of recent results in the SL. They also seem to have a lot of problems with Covid and injuries, I don’t know whether this is just bad luck or poor management.
Daryl Powell is moving to a much bigger outfit, he will have a bigger player roster some on big money and egos to manage, he will need to manage upwards and downwards, with bigger expectations and scrutiny. He has demonstrated in the past that he can develop players, hopefully he can develop the club.
If I was Mr Fitzpatrick I would be a bit worried. As am I. anyone else?

Not worried in the slightest. Cas & Powell are simply coming to a natural end. I don't think they are underperforming as such, just obviously struggling for motivation, now their only realistic trophy chance has gone. If anything, I'd hope they finish him early & give him chance to recharge before taking up his job with us.

Powell always comes across as a determined character. I'd hope Cas's drop in form is simply giving him the hunger to succeed in his new job, at a club where he will have far more resources, which he obviously lacks at Wheldon Road.
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

I think you need to look at Tony Smith at Hull KR, his last couple of years at Warrington weren’t up to standard, but he went away, moved to a new club and is having success. Powell is a good manager, I wouldn’t be too concerned that his last season is going down the pan.

Smith & Powell have achieved a lot over a period of time. I’d be more concerned if we were bringing in Watson for next year, he hasn’t got that consistent achievement in the bank yet to suggest a drop in form is temporary.

We will be fine. He clearly heavily involved in our recruitment for next year and I’m liking the way it’s developing. The time to judge is not now.

I’d tend to agree with your Watson comment after giving him a chance to shine next season. In the seasons he worked at Salford after replacing Tim Sheens ( A top coach in his day) is record was phenomenal. Each season he would start with a complete new bunch of players and by this time of the year they would of clicked proven by reaching a grand final and challenge cup final on probably the worse budget in Super League. At Huddersfield working with players with probably bigger egos it’s took this disruptive season to sort out who he feels can do a job and want to play for him and Huddersfield. I will eat humble pie though if Huddersfield are not a lot better next year.

I have not been following Cas closely but I am sure that they have been hit very hard with covid illness and injury.

I know we all enjoy having a go at our players and coaches, but surely we should wait until they get here ? :lol:

Its pleasing to see the sale of rose tinted spectacles have sold well to the normal stalwarts on this site.
Like I said I hope Daryl Powell and his crew do well for us, however, if we were still looking for a successor for Steve Price would we be looking at a coach whose season has imploded as badly as it has at Cas? Doubt it.

That's like saying Hull kr should've steered well clear of Tony Smith based on what happened in his last few years here. Awful signings, dire rugby, Middle 8s!
