Wigan winger Josh Charnley will be out for up to two months with a knee injury.

Charnley, Super League's leading try-scorer for each of the last two seasons, twisted his knee in the early stages of the Warriors' 58-6 Challenge Cup win over Dewsbury.

"Josh is going to be out for six to eight weeks," Wane said. "He doesn't need an operation but needs time off his legs. He's slightly twisted his knee but there's no ligament damage."

Reserve winger Dom Manfredi is set to deputise, starting with Friday's home game against London Broncos, who have yet to win a game in 2014. Wane admits he is tempted to rest some of his senior players ahead of the Easter schedule.

"I'll pick a very competitive team," Wane said. "We've had a few tough games this year so, if I need to rest someone before the Good Friday game at St Helens, I will.

"I've not made my mind up yet.''

Wigan boss Shaun Wane "disappointed" by Warrington

Tonight's Super League clash between Warrington and Wigan has a bit of added spice.

Wigan believe their rivals helped to plot their downfall in the World Club Challenge.

The Warriors were beaten by the Sydney Roosters in Australia last month, just weeks after Warrington had been down under on a pre-season trip.

The Wolves held a series of training sessions with the Aussie champions.
