Gary Neville spoke of his time with Manchester United when addressing Wigan's squad

Neville was invited by the club's rugby general manager and former Great Britain full-back Kris Radlinski to address the players and coaching staff at a break in training ahead of Sunday's home game against London Broncos.

Warriors head coach Shaun Wane, whose side suffered their first defeat of the season at Huddersfield last Saturday, said: "He was fantastic and we really enjoyed having him in."

Wane added: "The players got a lot out of it. He explained to us the culture at Man United of Alex Ferguson and all the boys said afterwards it is a similar model we try to follow here. It was a real lift for the club."
