Think switching rugby codes is tough? Well it's not the hardest challenge Josh Charnley faced this year

Former Rugby League star Josh Charnley will bring the curtain down on his first season in Rugby Union as Sale take on Bath this Saturday.

The 25 year old winger left Wigan to join the Sharks back in October and admits the move has been tougher than he expected.

St Helens interim boss criticises red card during Wigan defeat

Wigan Warriors beat St Helens by 29 points to 18 in Super League earlier today.

It was a familiar Easter fixture though for St Helens the unfamiliar position of having no Head Coach.

Sean Long and Jamahl Lolesi are in temporary charge following this week's shock sacking of Keiron Cunningham.

Their job got a whole lot harder when Kyle Amor was sent off on 12 minutes for a high tackle on Liam Marshall. Lolesi criticised the decision in his press conference after the game at the DW Stadium.

It was an eighth successive Good Friday win for Wigan. It doesn't get any easier for Saints - who host Super League leaders Castleford on Monday.
