Charnley seeks glorious end to Wigan stay

Wigan winger Josh Charnley is desperate to end his spell in rugby league with some tangible success, before he joins rugby union club Sale at the end of the sesaon.

Charnley is set to return from suspension for the opening game of Wigan’s Super Eights campaign, which is against Wakefield at the DW Stadium on Friday evening.

He is also keen for the team to put the disappointment of losing to Hull FC in the Challenge Cup semi-final behind them.

“It’s been a few years now since I touched some silverware,” he told the Warriors’ official website.

“I want to finish on a good note and leave the fans with a good memory of me so that’s why I’m trying to play my best and trying to get something out of this season.

“It’s been two weeks that I’ve been annoyed watching. Last weekend I really wanted to be a part of it and I couldn’t do what I wanted to do on the pitch but my suspension is up now so I’m just looking forward to this game.

“When I told Shaun Wane and Kris Radlinski that I was leaving I said that I wanted to win some silverware and leave on a high.

“I’ve been to the Challenge Cup Final twice and they’re some of the best weeks of your playing career so it’s upsetting but we’ve just got to think about the two other trophies that we can get now.”
