Josh Charnley: Ruled out for up to two months with a knee injury
England winger Josh Charnley has been ruled out for up to two months with a knee injury picked up during Wigan's Tetley's Challenge Cup win over Dewsbury.
Charnley, who has been Super League's leading try scorer in the last two seasons, twisted his knee in the early stages of the Warriors' 58-6 win over the Rams.
Wigan coach Shaun Wane said: "Josh is going to be out for six to eight weeks.
"He has twisted his knee but thankfully there is no ligament damage and he won't need an operation. He has some surface damage in the joint of his knee and he needs to be none weight bearing for a couple of weeks.
"It is a disappointment to lose Josh but it gives an opportunity for Dom Manfredi, Anthony Gelling and Dan Sarginson to take their chance."
Manfredi will replace Charnley for Friday's home game against London Broncos, who have not won a game in 2014, and Wane admits he is tempted to rest some of his senior players ahead of the Easter schedule.
"I'll pick a very competitive team," Wane said. "We've had a few tough games
this year so, if I need to rest someone before the Good Friday game at St Helens, I will.
"I've not made my mind up yet."
