Josh Charnley accepted the man’s apology

Warrington winger Josh Charnley hopes coming face to face with the person who threatened him on social media will help steer the culprit away from online abuse in the future.

The club strongly condemned the message at the time, which was sent during Warrington’s Betfred Super League defeat to Hull KR last month.

The man who sent the threat was given a long-term ban by Warrington, as was another woman who posted a similar message.

As part of the Rugby Football League’s ‘Tackle It’ campaign, Charnley recently met the man involved and accepted his apology.

Charnley, 30, said BBC Breakfast“You could see he was shaking, he felt embarrassed.

“He wouldn’t have said that to me in that room, no way.

“If you can meet them you can get your point across and I hope they take that on the chin.”

Charnley’s wife Zoe revealed how “disturbing” she found the post.

The player added: “I don’t know why I was targeted. It wasn’t nice to see and I don’t want to get comments like that and my family think I’m in danger.

“It shocked me at first. We don’t go there every week to get beat up.”
