The Red Devils went to the Total Ninja UK centre in Manchester as part of their pre-season training and took part in a lot of drills seen on the show’s obstacle course.

“Given the way we’re going at the moment, from my point of view I feel like we could challenge a lot of teams in the coming season.”
