JOSH Charnley believes Warrington Wolves showed great belief to “weather the storm” and beat Wigan Warriors in the Challenge Cup yesterday.

The ex-Wigan winger helped The Wire to a 26-24 victory over his former club to set up a quarter-final trip to Hull Kingston Rovers.

They were pushed all the way by a Wigan side Charnley believes put in their best display of the season.

“We knew Wigan were going to come here and put in a good performance – that’s the best they’ve played all year,” he said.

“There were a couple of patches in the game where we had to weather the storm but it’s good to get the win.

“There’s a lot of belief in this team at the minute and it’s good.

“We all know what we can do and we got to the other side of that storm and kicked on.”

With Wolves leading by two points with five minutes remaining, Charnley dropped a high kick 10 metres from his own line to give Wigan a chance to snatch victory.

He talked us through the moment the ball came his way.

“It was swirling everywhere – it was just one of those,” he said.

“He hit it and I saw it coming my way and I was thinking “oh no!”

“I thought I had it but that belief pulled us through.

“We stuck to our systems and our defence proved unbreakable.”
