Charnley back in Rugby League as he signs for Wire

19th March 2018

Josh Charnley's moved back to rugby league from rugby union.

The winger's signed for Warrington from Sale until November 2020.

Charnley switched codes in 2016 after winning the Super League Grand Final with Wigan.

He has seven England rugby league caps.

Charnley said:  “I like this club. It’s a good club to be at, there’s a good culture here and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in with the lads and pushing for that top four spot. There wasn’t much persuasion needed. I know a few boys here who speak highly of this club so it wasn’t a tough decision to put pen to paper.

“I’ve always liked playing at this stadium, it’s one of my favourites. Hopefully I’ll fit straight in with the boys. I’ve been out of the game 17 months. I’ll be looking to bring some enthusiasm to the boys and bring a bit of pace to the team. I’ll try and be a bit physical and try and give the lads a lift.”
