“Time for change if we go out of the cup” – Castleford fans divided over whether Daryl Powell is the right man in 2021

Current Castleford boss Daryl Powell is often thought of as some kind of saviour down at the Jungle.

When the ex-Featherstone boss took over midway through 2013, the club was languishing near the bottom of the table. Wind the clock forward to the end of 2017 and the Tigers had been Challenge Cup finalists, Grand Finalists and a consistent play-off hunting side.

Unfortunately, since then, Castleford have endured torrid injury lists, coupled with the Tigers’ worst finish under Powell in 2020. And, despite starting 2021 better – with six wins from seven – their 38-14 loss to Powell’s future employers at Warrington really didn’t go down well with the Castleford faithful. In fact, it led some supporters calling for Powell to leave. But just how divided are Jungle fans?

One fan called for change if the Tigers crash out of the Challenge Cup against Warrington in less than a fortnight’s time.

Another fan called for incoming boss Lee Radford to be given the reins before the end of the season.

Another echoed those sentiments.

Another used profanities to get his point across.

Yet another Castleford fan thought the same.

Another believed that “something’s not right” and called for change.

However, one person dismissed the financial implications of a Powell early exit.

That opinion was backed up by another Facebook user.

Another highlighted that Powell has got the Tigers to a Challenge Cup semi-final.

One Facebook user dismissed the idea due to all the implications of Powell leaving right now.
