Wigan chairman welcomes NRL interest

Wigan Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan tells BBC North West Tonight that he is happy to allow players from his club to ply their trade in Australia's NRL, as he believes they will return to Wigan better players.

England duo Lee Mossop and Gareth Hock have agreed moves to Parramatta Eels at the end of the 2013 Super League season.

Meanwhile, Lenagan has backed new signing Andy Powell, who joined from rugby union outfit Sale Sharks on Tuesday, to make a big impact after switching codes to rugby league.
