Josh Charnley signs new Warrington deal

Warrington winger Josh Charnley has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until the end of 2022.

Charnley, 28, has scored 40 tries in 51 appearances for the Wolves since making his debut on Good Friday last year.

He said: “It was a no brainer really. I’ve enjoyed my time at the club so far and when they offered me a new deal I couldn’t turn it down. We’re a tight-knit group and do everything together.

“We’re building for something big at this club and we’re working hard week in week out to achieve something special. To be a part of that would be something great.

“We got to two finals last year where we were a small fraction off. That still hurts the lads here now. We’ve been building and I believe we can achieve something big this year.”

Charnley previous won Super League and the Challenge Cup with Wigan, before switching codes to join Sale Sharks.

Coach Steve Price said: “We are ecstatic to get Charners over the line. He’s been a really consistent performer week in, week out, since he arrived at our club.

“He’s a fantastic Rugby League player and a seasoned-pro. He is a pleasure to coach and certainly knows how to get over the try line.

“He’s a well-liked member of our squad and portrays a really good image for our sport. He is a big family man too who likes a spot of fishing in his spare time, recently landing an 18 pounder!”
