Rugby league team Wigan Warriors' Under-19s players have started taking weekly ballet classes.

It's to help improve their strength and posture and reduce injury to their ankles and knees.

The team say they're enjoying it and they've noticed a difference in their strength thanks to the training.

Their ballet teacher hopes more professional teams in the UK will take up ballet.
