STEVE Price has backed Warrington Wolves winger Josh Charnley to rediscover his best form.

Indeed, he believes there were signs in his display in the win at Catalans Dragons on Saturday that the flyer is "getting back to where he needs to be."

Charnley is yet to score a try this season, with his last touchdown coming in the Challenge Cup win over St Helens in September last year – a run that stretches back 11 matches.

However, Price believes it is only a matter of time before the 29-year-old returns to the prolific form that has seen him cross for 48 tries in 81 appearances for The Wire.

"Josh is getting back to where we need him to be," Price said.

"I thought he showed some really good signs last week. He got his running game back and his yardage carries were like the Josh Charnley of old

" I was very pleased with his performance – he had the chance of a try from a chip from Gaz (Widdop) but it was a great tackle on him by Sam (Tomkins)."

The 24-8 win in Perpignan also saw stand-off Blake Austin left out of the team, with Stefan Ratchford preferred as Gareth Widdop's half-back partner.

Price would not be drawn on whether Austin would regain his place against Hull KR on Saturday, but did say the Australian had responded in the right manner.

"He’s been good around the boys and at training. I don’t expect anything different," he said.

"I just thought it was the best way forward last week."
