It's an unlikely collaboration between two Super League clubs but it's one that seems to work.
Reigning Rugby League champions the Wigan Warriors have continued their preparations for the new season by swapping the rugby pitch for the netball court.
They've been put through their paces by players from the Manchester Thunder as part of a pre-season project to share skills.
Sarah Rogers went along to see them in action:

An inquest has heard that a doctor told police officers who were restraining former Wigan Warriors player Luke Rhoden 'You are asphyxiating him, you are going to kill him.'
Inquest resumes into death of Luke Rhoden. Jury are being shown footage of Luke falling from the roof of the Ibiza rocks hotel.
Det Insp Moore shows jury video of Luke Rhoden being restrained and says he believes one officer held a baton across Luke's head or neck.
Det Insp Moore says Greater Manchester police tried to contact Ibiza police but that 'they've no power to investigate in a foreign country'
Doctor who treated Luke Rhoden is giving evidence. He says police were holding a baton to Luke's neck & that he told them 3 times to stop.
Doctor tells police..'You are asphyxiating him (Luke Rhoden)..you are going to kill him.' He says by the time they stopped it was too late.
Wigan Warriors prop forward Dom Crosby has left the club to join rivals Warrington Wolves.
The 25-year-old broke into the first team at the DW Stadium in 2013, playing in four consecutive Grand Finals and making 102 appearances for the Warriors.
Wigan chairman Ian Lenagan said the club were unable to commit to a new and improved contract for Crosby.
After internal discussions, it was felt that the team had more than enough strength in the front-row to allow Dom to leave. The arrival of Romain Navarrete and the promising future for Academy graduate, Joe Bretherton, is a cost-effective and highly promising pairing for the future which, together with our existing 7 senior middles, gives us more than enough coverage in this position.
Having handed Dom his debut in 2012 it has been a pleasure to watch him grow and mature both on and off the field. Dom has enjoyed success at the Wigan Club winning two Grand Finals and playing over 100 games. He endured a difficult spell at the start of the year because of injury but bounced back well and deservedly walked away from Old Trafford last week with a winners' ring.
This was a difficult decision but one that we felt was right for all parties. Everyone at the Club wishes Dom well.
Wigan Warriors celebrated victory in the Super League Grand Final by bursting into song.
They recorded their own version of Queen's Don't Stop Me Now. And as the video shows they all really entered into the spirit of it.
