ANDY Powell’s arrival from rugby union was among the widespread changes announced by Wigan Warriors.

The expected arrival of Powell and the exit of Lee Mossop to the NRL were both confirmed, as well as the appointment of Sean Long to a role on the coaching staff.

And Liam Farrell – who has made a stunning start to this season – pledged his future to the club with the signing of a new five-year deal.

Mossop will head to Parramatta with a return ticket – meaning fans can expect to see him in a Wigan shirt again.

Gareth Hock is also moving to the NRL after the Eels agreed to pay six-figure transfers for each player.
