“I couldn’t be any prouder” – Powell hails Paul McShane’s England inclusion

Ever since Paul McShane joined Castleford midway through 2015, the diminutive hooker has become one of the club’s most important players.

But, that recognition has often been limited to the Castleford club. Now though, McShane has been included in Shaun Wane’s England squad – much to the delight of Powell.

“I’m absolutely delighted for him, it’s something we’ve spoken about for a fair while since Paul has been at the club,” Powell said.

“I’ve worked with him to keep his mind on it because he felt that it was slipping away from him.

“He just needed a coach that would believe in him in the international setup and he’s got that now.

“I couldn’t be any prouder of any player that he’s got this opportunity after working so hard.”
