Sharples, a member of the England U20s set up last season, has played his part this season with 6 tries from 13 competitive starts despite the challenge of having to compete for a place against the likes of Lesley Vainikolo and James Simpson-Daniel.
Talking to the media this week, Charlie said the team are remaining positive and looking ahead.
"We've still got the European quarter final so we're very much in the running for another cup and we're still hoping to qualify for the Heineken via the league."
"The important thing for us is to put last Sunday behind us. It's the first final we've been in for a while where we've been in it from start to finish."
"We pushed Northampton, who have been one of the form teams in the league, all the way so we showed we can compete with the very best."
"We could have won that game, there were so many opportunities to win it. We have to take the positives from it and move on and focus on the rest of the season and the games we've got left."
From a personal perspective, Sharples is pleased to have contributed this season and hopes be involved over the next week or so.
"I haven't had too much game time in the past few weeks because the other wingers have been playing so well but it's been a good season overall for me so far."
"We've got three games in a week coming up so I'm hoping to get a run out. Three games in eight days is tough. We'll need to make the most of our resources and use the squad."
"But, I've had a lot of game time already this season though which has been great and a real positive for me."
