Aussie prop Hamlin has returned home after being charged with a UK Anti-Doping violation.

His suspension came a week after fringe first-teamer Craig Mullen was charged with drink-driving.

And former Warriors crowd-pleaser Carney had a strong message to the current Wigan players during a hard-hitting interview with Sky Sports News.

He said: "There are players at that club that are disgracing themselves. They are letting the club down and the supporters.

"There are people paying money and going to support them every week.

"We have had Zak Hardaker pre-season on a drink driving charge, Craig Mullen in recent weeks on drink driving and now we've got a UK anti doping agency violation by Gabe Hamlin.

"I will say this to the players: 'Who do you think you are?'

"You are not the club. The people who go every week are the club. You are letting yourself, your fellow players and the supporters and Kris Radlinski and Ian Lenagan down.

"They are absolutely disgraceful, some of these players."
