Charnley responds after mocking Makinson and Coote at victory parade

Josh Charnley has responded on twitter after coming under fire for mocking Tommy Makinson and Lachlan Coote at Warrington’s Challenge Cup victory parade.

While celebrating their Wembley success on an open-top bus parade in the town centre, Wolves’ supporters urged Charnley to sing a song while in possession of the microphone.

The former Wigan winger then proceeded to sing St Helens’ chants about England winger Makinson and Scotland full-back Coote.

After the video was posted by a fan on Instagram, Charnley has since come in for criticism with many labelling the chants arrogant and patronising.

Despite the chants, Charnley defended himself saying they were not arrogant and claimed it was the first beat that came into his head.

He tweeted: “Fans who think I’m taking the piss/being arrogant towards @TommyMak21 Im 100% not he’s at the top of his game & a player I respect alot, The fans asked me to sing & that was the first beat that came to my head as the boys have been singing it all weekend!!”

The incident will likely add fuel to the fire should Warrington face Saints again in the Super League playoffs.

Steve Price’s men first have to secure their place in the top five and return to league action on Thursday when they travel to fifth-placed Salford.
