POWELL SINGS CHAPPELL'S PRAISES
Featherstone Rovers have developed the knack of helping talented players rediscover their mojos' over the past few seasons. Players who have become disenchanted, found their careers in a cul de sac, were underperforming, have come to the Bigfellas Stadium and made an exciting fresh start.
It looks as though 21 year old Nathan Chappell, a big strong, but skilful second rower or centre is next in line.
Chappell started out with Underbank Rangers, before joining the Giants' Academy, and then signing for Castleford Tigers. Then his career hit the buffers. Rovers' Head Coach Daryl Powell takes up the story;
Things hadn't worked out at Cas. So Nathan dropped out of the game: we played him in our reserve grade side and it was obvious that he had ability and potential. His defence is excellent and he has the ability to cause opposition defences a whole lot of trouble: as he showed on his debut against Hunslet last weekend. Nathan is now part of our squad.
