When Daryl Powell announced his exit from Castleford Tigers during the 2021 Super League season, it was truly the end of an era.
After almost nine seasons in charge at the Jungle, Powell would make the move over to Cheshire with the Warrington Wolves – whose own head coach Steve Price was due to leave at the end of last season.
Powell signed the deal and the rest, as they say, is history.
And, now the former Leeds Rhinos and Featherstone Rovers boss has spoke about how he has fitted in at the club and the town itself.
“I really like it, I moved here in November,” Powell told the Through The Wire podcast.
“We’ve really settled and the people of Warrington have been great – to my face anyway!
“This area of the country I’ve found to be great.”
Powell also spoke about how it worked with bringing half of his backroom staff (Ryan Sheridan and Danny Evans) to the Warrington club and amalgamate the two workforces.
“We did some work before we came over to discuss the club, players and the training facilities and we got to know each other pretty well before we even saw each other.
“So that’s been organic how that has blended together.
“I would like to be a bit further ahead with the team’s trajectory, but it will come.”
