Charnley to leave Wire as club linked with Wests Tigers’ Thomas Mikaele


WARRINGTON’S flying winger Josh Charnley is set to leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Charnley, aged 30, has been with the Wolves since he returned to rugby league in 2018 after two years in rugby union with Sale Sharks.

Charnley has made almost 100 appearances for Warrington but Head Coach Daryl Powell says the winger will not be offered a new deal. Charnley has scored 217 tries in 263 appearances in rugby league for Wigan, Hull KR (loan) and Warrington and has won nine caps for England.

Meanwhile, Powell says there will be a few “good stories” in regards to player retention in the coming weeks.

The rebuilding for next season has already started with the club linked with Wests Tigers’ forward Thomas Mikaele on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old’s contract with the Tigers expires at the end of the season and it is understood they haven’t been able to match an offer of a three-year deal from Warrington.
