Warrington ready to bounce back against Castleford, says Josh Charnley

Warrington winger Josh Charnley says his side are ready to put last week’s thrashing at Leeds behind them when they host Castleford on Friday.

The Wolves suffered an embarrassing 36-0 defeat at Leeds last week, which came just three weeks after they nilled champions St Helens.

Charnley said: “We were embarrassed. We reviewed the game Saturday morning and, when we watched it, we couldn’t believe what we’d actually dished up.

“It’s mad. We’ve had two good games, Wigan and Saints, and it’s just slipped off since that.

“Luckily enough we’ve got a quick turnaround and can bounce back. We’ve had two good days training – everyone’s mindset is different and we’re focused a lot this week.

“Nobody’s sloping around with their bottom lip out. Everybody’s buzzing.”

The Wolves have lost three out of their first five games this year, while Castleford have the chance to go top after losing just one game so far.

Charnley added: “They’re coming in hot. They’ve got some exciting players in the team that can make something out of nothing so it’s going to be a tough challenge for us.

“They play a lot of edge to edge stuff and have some electric wingers who are well known for scoring tries.

“It’s a challenge we need. We need to put some smiles back on people’s faces and stop the doubters writing us off.

“We’ve got some talented players in this team on paper and we should not be getting nilled.”
