Josh Charnley credits ill-fated code switch with extending league career

Josh Charnley credits ill-fated code switch with extending league career

Last crowned champions in 1955, the ambitious Wolves have reached four Grand Finals and lost them all. Charnley was their tormentor in 2013 and 2016, scoring for Wigan in those title deciders before tasting defeat with Warrington at the hands of his old club at Old Trafford last season.
The Wolves lost both major finals in 2018 but won the Challenge Cup last month and victory over Castleford would encourage hopes of a long-awaited championship.
Warrington have lost seven of their last eight league games and Charnley added: “The pain of losing last year’s Grand Final is still there for some of the boys and we need to fix that up.
“Right now we’re not in great form, but it’s a blip and we’ve shown that when we click we blow teams off the park. Castleford are an exciting side who throw the ball a lot and they’re defensively strong too, so it will be a good contest.
“At the beginning of the year we wrote down our goals and we have achieved one part of that by lifting the Challenge Cup. We just need to tick the wins off and reach Old Trafford now.”
Meanwhile, Lachlan Coote (St Helens), Blake Austin (Warrington), Jackson Hastings (Salford), Liam Watts (Castleford) and George Williams (Wigan) are on a five-man shortlist for the 2019 Man of Steel award that will be announced on October 6.
