WARRIORS star Josh Charnley caught attention for two reasons at the weekend.

The wing wizard was explosive in Wigan’s 70-0 victory over London – scoring two tries – but just hours later he made headlines for a slightly different reason when a naked photo of the 22-year-old somehow found its way onto Twitter and went viral.

The pictures caused somewhat of a stir with rugby league fans and the winger will probably expect some stick when they play Hull KR this weekend.

Rival player Jordan Turner, who plays for St Helens, couldn’t help taking a dig, tweeting: Whoever invented camera phones is a legend, changed the world and ruined plenty of lives, some people are just plain dumb though! #selfies

Wigan Warriors declined to comment on the incident.
