    Dwain Chambers to Join Castelford?

    I know there is a Rugby League thread, but this seems to big a story to stick in a thread. Just saw this on Sky Sports News, apparently widely hated drugs cheat Dwain Chambers now fancies chancing his arm in Rugby League, and Castelford are going to sign him up, as you do like.

    Will try and find links, and look into whether this is tabloid talk or genuine

    I have no idea. He had a crack at American Football, that's as much as I know.

    Seems a bit farcical to me for a 29 year old who can run fast to be signed at the top level of a sport.

    He's a southern lad, so I'd be a bit surprised if he's too well versed in the finer points of the 13-man code.

    What's indisputable is that he can motor, so if he can be taught to catch...

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    That's a cruel signature you have there Brumby!!!

    I don't know loads about RL but is it feasible that he could actually be a success?

    Wants to make his mind up about which sport he wants to play as well

    No, rugby's the game you play if you want to have no skills in the game and be an instant success.

    It does have that feel to it. I missed Andrew Johns playing 20/20 unfortunately.

    Wendell being the exception that proves this rule, then?

    I don't doubt that there is a big element of the publicity stunt about this (not to mention it being only three days to April Fools'...), but the chances of Chambers being a success are several times higher than they were for Joey who played (IIRC) 5th Grade cricket in Newcastle before his sudden promotion.

    I can't imagine he'll ever be much cop defensively & won't be kicking many 40/20s, but if he can at least catch it's essentially a "Run, Forrest, run" scenario.

    Wendell was only in it for the drugs
