Wigan winger Josh Charnley said goodbye to his Warriors team mates and fans with a try in their Grand Final win over Warrington on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford.
Charnely pounced on a Dan Sarginson kick to claim the game’s key score, and he was enthusiastically hugged by former Wigan great Martin Offiah on the pitch after the final whistle.
“When I signed for Sale, I said to Shaun Wane that I wanted to finish with some silverware,”he told Sky Sports after the game.
“Having my friends, my family and all the fans here – what a way to finish!
“I’m pretty speechless to be honest.
“I’ve grown at this club. I’ve been here many years. I’ve been around the boys day-in and day-out, it’s like family here.
“It’s going to be an emotional night, but I’m looking forward to the next challenge.”
