Powell signs new Fev deal

Head coach Daryl Powell has signed a contract extension with Featherstone to keep him at the club until 2014.

Powell led Rovers to the Championship league leaders shield in 2010, and has committed his long term future to the club as it looks to work towards Super League in 2015.

He said: “I’m delighted to pledge my future to Rovers. I’ve enjoyed being part of the club’s growth over the last couple of years. It means a lot to me that I’ve been given the opportunity to contribute to the development of what is already a proud Rugby League club into an outstanding sporting organisation.”

The former Great Britain international, who earned 27 caps, retired from playing in 2001 and became coach of Leeds, before later moving upstairs to become director of rugby.

After a spell in rugby union, he returned to league with Featherstone in September 2008, and led Rovers to within one game of the Championship Grand Final in his first season.

They went one better in 2010, but were defeated after extra time by Halifax in September’s Grand Final.
