Cowie calls it a day
Neil Cowie is calling it a day with Wigan
Wales rugby league international Neil Cowie has decided to hang up his boots following Wigan's Grand Final defeat against Bradford.

The 34-year-old former Rochdale forward, who played in the 1995 World Cup, will now concentrate on his restaurant business.

Cowie, who was vice-captain of Wales and a Great Britain international, played over 300 games for Wigan.

The club's chairman, Maurice Lindsay, said: "Neil is one of the toughest guys you could meet.

"I know he will miss the game terribly. There should be a role for him in rugby league and I know he would make a decent coach."

Meanwhile, Kel Coslett, the Wales boss, has been appointed as St Helens' new football operations manager.

He takes over from Eric Hughes.
