Playing career[edit]

From the Hornby club, Angell played for the Canterbury side that bet Auckland in 1993, starting in the second row in the Provincial grand final.[1][2]

He played for the Christchurch City Shiners in the 1994 Lion Red Cup.[3]

Angell was then signed to the Auckland Warriors in 1995 but did not play in the first grade team. He signed with the Featherstone Rovers for the 1995/96 season but in February 1996 Featherstone had to cut his contract as a cost-cutting measure.[4] Angell played the rest of the 1996 season with the Salford City Reds and remained there for 1997.[5]

He then returned to Canterbury and resumed his provincial representative career.[6] In 1998 he played for the Tasman Orcas as an import player while playing for the Hornby Panthers in the Canterbury Rugby League.[7]

Between 1999 and 2003 Angell played for the Canning Bulldogs in the Western Australia Rugby League competition.[5][8]
