Adrian Lam says Leigh Leopards star should receive England call up

Leigh Leopards winger Josh Charnley has been in superb form recently.

Charnley has been scoring tries for fun including a hat trick against Hull FC recently.

He is chasing the all time record for Super League tries with Ryan Hall and Danny McGuire ahead of him.

Meanwhile, he has been nominated for the Player of the Month in Super League for March.

Thus, his coach Adrian Lam was full of praise for him speaking on the club’s YouTube channel:

“Josh has been outstanding, he came to us halfway through last year and was not in a really good place with rugby league in his life and a little bit of a downer.

“We’ve found that love back for him and the way he’s trained through pre-season I would question potentially the best in all of Super League.

“I know what he’s done for us and he’s left no stone unturned in his preparations for Super League this year and I think he’s been outstanding and best wishes on him potentially winning this month’s Player of of the Month.”

When asked if he should be up for England selection, Lam said: “Absolutely the way that he’s playing at the moment is as good as any. I think he’s in the top three stats for a winger or for any player with metres gained, carries, tries.

“He’s up there with all of the top two or three stats in the game at the moment, which would represent that he probably deserves an opportunity to get another crack back in that position.

“He’s got to keep maintaining that through this, he’s certainly started the season on the right foot and I think he can only get better.”
