This season started so well for Josh Charnley.
He was scoring tries for fun and surpassed the 200 try mark becoming only the third player in Super League history to do so.
He then outlined his intentions to surpass Ryan Hall and Danny McGuire as the competition’s all-time leading try scorer.
But as Warrington’s form nose dived, he was a player left on the outside as Daryl Powell begins his rebuild which has seen the likes of Mike Cooper be allowed to join Wigan.
Connor Wrench and Josh Thewlis were both playing instead of Charnley and it seemed like he wouldn’t get a look in.
However, Leigh stepped in to give him a chance to play signing him for this season and beyond.
Today the Centurions’ new number 27 is set for his debut and has taken to Twitter to voice his excitement confessing that he didn’t think he’d be looking forward to a game day again this year.
He said: “It’s game day, Didn’t think I’d be saying it again this year. Im excited about this one! Let’s go Leythers.”

The table topping Centurions take on Workington hoping to maintain their lead over Featherstone at the top of the league.
Charnley will be hoping to play a key role in the game and the rest of the season as Leigh aim for a return to Super League.
