Castleford Tigers star opens up on relationship with Daryl Powell and where his future could lie

You think of Castleford Tigers and you think of Adam Milner.

Almost 300 appearances and 11 years later and Milner is still earning a living with his hometown club at 29 years of age.

For almost nine of those 11 years, Daryl Powell was the loose forward’s head coach, with the duo building a blossoming relationship.

And now, Milner has revealed just how close the two were.

“I’ve got a great relationship with Powelly; as a coach he is top class,” Milner told Serious About Rugby League.

“The fine detail and knowledge he gives you as a player is awesome.

“Don’t get me wrong there’s been time where we have had disagreements, but ultimately he has just been trying to get the very best out of me.

“As a bloke, off the field he can still be quite serious. I’ve had plenty of good times and laughs with Powelly often where he’s been on the receiving end of my jokes.”

Powell has taken over at the Warrington Wolves, signalling the end of a lengthy relationship, with Castleford also entering a new era under former Hull FC boss Lee Radford.
