Hair we go, says Warrior Charnley

JOSH Charnley hopes his new streamlined hairstyle will enable him to make some Warriors history this season.

The jet-heeled winger had his head shaved yesterday by Sam Tomkins for the Joining Jack charity.

But Charnley could have the last laugh by pipping his team-mate and colleague to the Super League top tryscorers’ crown.

Charnley’s touchdown at London last weekend was his 26th of the campaign, cementing his position at the summit with six rounds to go.

Tomkins’ four-try haul catapulted him into second spot on 22, with Warrington centre Ryan Atkins in third on 21.

But Charnley, who is only one short of last year’s career-best haul of 27, is determined not to relinquish top spot – to Tomkins or anyone.

And he even has Pat Richards’ club record of 32 tries in a season set on 2010 within his sights.

“I need a few more tries to try and beat this record,” Charnley told the Evening Post.

“It’s be great for me personally and I’d love to get it. I won’t be worried if I don’t get there, though. It’s more about the team at the end of the day.

“We’ll look at it over the next few weeks and see how we are.

“But I’ll do whatever I can to help the team win – and scoring tries does that!”

Charnley is also second in the Super League points-scoring chart after 21 rounds, 14 behind Catalan Dragons half-back Scott Dureau.
