Tigers confirm Chambers

Recommended Posts

Former Olympic sprinter Dwain Chambers will join the Castleford Tigers on a one month trial with a view to joining Super League permanently.The Briton, 29, was banned for two years from athletics for using designer steroid THG, but returned to the circuit to claim 60metres silver at the World Indoor Championships at the start of March.News of Chambers' move to rugby league broke on Friday and Castleford have now confirmed the move as they seek to improve their fortunes in the top flight.The Tigers are currently bottom of the standings with one win and eight defeats to their name so far this season, but it is hoped Chambers' arrival could help boost the squad.Football manager Michael Robinson said: "Obviously we are well aware of Dwain's background and we gave the whole situation a great deal of thought."However, like people in our own sport, he has been punished and taken that punishment. That is now behind him and he is serious about trying to make the grade in rugby league. He clearly already has the pace."Whilst with us he will be working with the guys on sprint training and doing some community work, so whatever the outcome of the trial, which we all believe can be successful, we gain something from his time with us, and it won't impact upon any plans that we have to strengthen the side with established players, should they become available."Londoner Chambers is currently barred from running for Britain in the Olympics because of British Olympic Association rules on doping.

Rugby League fans are pissed. And rightfully so. Dwain is mocking their whole sport.
My only experience of rugby is the photoshoot the other day with the ball in my hand.
:D

He doesn't know when to lay low and shut up.Will be interesting to see what he does though, cause pace alone wont save him.
