Some Wigan players disgracing the club - Carney

3rd April 2019, 18:12 by Nick Harris

Brian Carney has hit out some of the current crop of players at Wigan labelling them a disgrace.

His comments on Sky come in a week that has seen Australian prop forward Gabe Hamlin suspended from the game and returning Down Under after being charged with a UK anti doping violation.

He is the latest in a long line of players who have fallen below the standards expected off them at the club and Carney has hit out.

He said: "There are players at that club that are disgracing themselves. They are letting the club down and the supporters.

"There are people paying money and going to support them every week.

"We have had Zak Hardaker pre-season on a drink-driving charge, Craig Mullen in recent weeks on drink-driving and now we've got a UK anti doping agency violation by Gabe Hamlin.

"I will say this to the players: 'Who do you think you are?' You are not the club.

"The people who go every week are the club. You are letting yourself, your fellow players and the supporters and Kris Radlinski and Ian Lenagan down.

"They are absolutely disgraceful, some of these players."
