RE: Man of Steel
I think the build from the nl has put them in the reckoning & then living within their means when other sides have struggled, notwithstanding the merry bunch of deadheads they have on the terraces they have made the 8 as well.

Still believe we'd have got it had we not got the other awards.

living within their means is a bit rich. They needed a massive bail out and then he had to pump a truckload his own cash in to the club. They were initially run on the Shudds build it and they will come mantra. Their crowds aren't that bad but I'd suspect they make a small loss every year and certainly don't like within their means.

Climbing out of the L1 would've been a piece of piss with their set up a bit of cash and some half decent players. In the Champ they notoriously under performed winning very little during their tenure one arrive bus replacement service trophy and I can't remember them bothering to win anything else.

What they did do well is play the RFL's game. Steve O connor funded some nice shiny new facilities )and got the back room staff in place) for a new start at the top flight. If it wasn't for licensing I seriously doubt they be in this position.

As for the Fans there's been at least two pretty high profile bit of trouble with fans acting like complete dicks. The culture clearly hasn't been dealt with so they should never have even made the shortlist.

Daryl Clark admits he would one day like to challenge himself in the National Rugby League in Australia after winning the 2014 Steve Prescott Man Of Steel and Young Player of the Season awards.

The hooker, 21, who will leave Castleford to join Warrington in 2015 on a four-year contract, won the top prizes at Super League's presentation night, the first time a player has scooped the biggest individual honours since Widnes's Joe Lydon in 1984.

"I'm a massive fan of the NRL," Clark said. "I watch pretty much every game. "I've got them on series link and I watch them on my days off through the week.

"One day I would like to go there and test myself but I want to establish myself in Super League first. Maybe in a few years' time."

The young forward will be able to test himself against the best the Kangaroos currently have to offer in the upcoming Four Nations after being named as England's first-choice hooker following the withdrawal of James Roby.

The St Helens player, who wants to give his injured ankles time to fully recover in the off season, was on the Man of Steel short-list, along with prop forwards Jamie Peacock (Leeds) and Chris Hill (Warrington), but took time out at the awards night to wish his successor well.

"He wished me luck and said he hopes we go over there and play well," Clark said. "They are big shoes to fill. He's been outstanding for a few years.

"I'm just looking to go there and enjoy it. It's something new for me, I've never been involved with the England set-up.

"It's going to be tough but that's what you want to do, test yourself against the best players in your position to see where you stand."

Clark has been training two days a week with the fall-out squad since Castleford bowed out of the play-offs and they will be joined by the seven-strong Wigan contingent involved in Saturday's Grand Final on the plane to Australia next Tuesday.

"It's the worst signature I've seen. Its mix of homoerotic eulogising and pseudo-philosophical shite makes me sick. Since Hank has had this sig, SLF has gone down the toilet. I hate him. I can't stress that enough. I hope he gets banned." - Kevin Sinfield
