Wigan Watch: Josh Charnley
DOB: 26/06/1991 (22 Years Old)
Likely Opponent: Daniel Tupou
A young man who is no stranger to a try line, Josh Charnley is ranked amongst the best finishers in the world of rugby league.
Capped on 99 occasions by Wigan, the 22-year-old will undoubtedly prove to be a handful for our boys come February 22 when the Red and White Warriors arrive in Sydney for the first World Club Challenge (WCC) to be contested on Australian soil in more than 20 years.
The Super League’s leading try-scorer now for two seasons, Charnley has not only left a mark on the English domestic competition but also shown himself to be an international star of the future since his debut against Wales in 2012 when the speedster crossed for four tries.
Out on the right wing, Charnley is likely to face off against Grand Final hero Daniel Tupou in the WCC clash in what is set to be a mouth-watering battle between both speed and size.

Featuring in 33 of the 35 fixtures Wigan played throughout last season, Charnley found the line on 36 occasions to follow the 43 he managed in the 2012 season, in which he became the first ever Super League player to manage more than 40 tries in a calendar year.
But, can he handle our very own Towering Tongan out wide?
There’s only one way to find out. Be there this February 22 when we host the Wigan Warriors in the World Club Challenge at our house, Allianz Stadium.

The boys are keen to see a sea of Red, White and Blue in the stands as they look to claim the highest international prize for Club sides around the world. Don’t miss out on being a part of history, Roosters Fans, and be there when we look to build our #RWBLegacy!
