Castleford Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has spoken of his delight at two of his players earning a place in the end of season Super League Dream Team.
Captain Michael Shenton was chosen as one of the two centres and Daryl Clark was selected at hooker in the line-up picked by a panel of broadcasters and journalists.
Powell said: “It’s great that the club has been represented by two players in this way.
“It reflects how we’ve gone as a team this year that we’ve got a couple of players in there.
“There probably could have been at least a couple more who were very, very close to being in as well.
“I am really pleased that what we’ve achieved this year and the way we’ve performed has got a couple of players who have been in outstanding form a place in the Dream Team.
“Michael Shenton as a player first has been outstanding and as a leader he’s grown and grown and is so hugely respected within the changing room.
“Daryl Clark has just been phenomenal all year and it’s a true reward for two very good players.
“Grant Millington, perhaps, if he hadn’t have got injured would have been very close to a place in the team. Lynchy’s been a model of consistency and Craig Huby’s been great as well.
“Sneydy’s been very good for us and Justin Carney. He’s had a couple of misses with suspensions and injury so you can understand that a little bit why he’s not in.
“There’s been a lot of players who have played well for the team all year and we will have had a fair few who will have been spoken about I would have thought.”
