I have heard that the Dewsbury Rams are becoming very interested in our academy coach Gary Thornton,he would be a big loss to our club imo if he went

word has it that he would take it too if it was offered as he's not convinced at all by Basil's coaching and how he's handling the club and it's players at present,apparently the whole coaching team don't rate him one bit and reckon that the club has gone back years from when matterson was at the club and that the after effects of this will show up down the line

Should we be concerned about Basil if this is true?
Wigan Warriors coach Shaun Wane told BBC Radio Manchester:
"Some people within the club [Castleford] have come out with comments saying we're beatable and it's a great game for them and they're very confident.
Many of the comments I've heard have been bordering on disrespectful.
They can be as confident as they want, but they're going to get a tough game this weekend and we'll be trying our best to make sure they don't get that win.
We've played in some big games over these last few years and they've not played in as many, if any, so to be that confident is very risky for them.
They come here with confidence because they've scored a lot of points and beaten us at home, but I wouldn't be overconfident if I was them."

Incidentally Wane's mob got stuffed 16 - 4

Millward's coaching.

To be fair, I'm surprised Thornton has stayed this long. Was a very good coach at Batley so it seems unusual for him to stay down the ranks at Cas.

Agree - don't think it is any surprise GT attracts attention of clubs for his experience.... but that is why. his experience.

Anything else is merely conveniently adding another dimension that doesn't exist - if Basil and GT had aproblem with each other, they would have encouraged each other to pursue other opportunities by now, for someone of Gary's experience int he game, he could have gone somewhere else quicker and easier than this.

Trolling? Just pointing out your inability to remove your head from the sand.

Thats far kinder than where i thought you may suggest his head resided. :D
Back O/T, GT is a very well respected coach and a nice guy, i'm sure if Mildred wanted shut he would have been gone by now, but he won't be short of offers, very much Cas's loss, but equally very lucky having him in the job in the first place.

Deliberately taking a pot-shot at me, avoiding the AUP and not speaking about the topic subject? Yeah, clear trolling actually.

Much of the backroom staff is what Millward brought in to be honest.
