Warrington Wolves star Josh Charnley opens up on the horror abuse aimed at him

Earlier in the season, Warrington Wolves were in a bad run of form.

With a losing run on their backs, the Cheshire club travelled to Hull KR where they were outclassed in a dismal performance.

However, following that game, winger Josh Charnley was targeted by vile abuse and death threats, something which he has now opened up on.

“We put our bodies on the line for this club,” Charnley said on BBC Breakfast.

“I don’t know why I was targeted it’s not nice to see that when you open Twitter and that’s the top comment.

“I don’t want to get comments like that and my family feeling like I was in danger.

“We were in a bit of a rut getting beat, when you check social media and that was there it shocked me at first – we don’t go out there to get beat.”

Charnley referenced how easy it is for people to say what they want on social media.

“At the minute social media is easy to direct contact with someone, so we’re trying to tackle that.”

Since then, Charnley and the offender have met where the winger put his thoughts across, hoping that the perpetrator takes his comments on board.
