WARRINGTON Wolves have issued a powerful statement strongly condemning the ‘despicable social media abuse’ directed at winger Josh Charnley following their Superleague Betfred defeat at Hull KR.
The statement read: ‘The heinous threats are totally unacceptable and long-term bans have been issued to an 18-year-old male and a 21-year-old female.
“As a club, we are all disappointed and hurt by recent results and performances, but there is a line that must never be crossed when targeting our players and staff online. They are human beings, with families who also see and suffer the abuse.
“The Club fully supports Josh who has understandably been affected by the comments.
“Following discussions with the RFL, as part of their ‘Tackle It’ campaign, an amicable meeting was arranged with Josh and the man involved, who subsequently expressed to the club and the player his deep regret for his actions.”
