Charnley out for two months

England winger Josh Charnley has been ruled out for up to two months with a knee injury picked up during Wigan'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 doesn't need an operation but needs time off his legs. He's slightly twisted his knee but there's no ligament damage."

Dom 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 compettive 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."
