Warrington Wolves’ Ben Currie receives positive injury update

Warrington expect England forward Ben Currie to be back within a month despite aggravating an old knee injury in the win over Wigan.

Currie missed the first five months of the 2017 season after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament against Wigan the previous September.

He made his comeback just in time to earn a place in England’s squad for the 2017 World Cup and went on to play in all six matches including the final.

Wolves fans might have feared the worst when he went off 17 minutes into Friday’s 16-10 Betfred Super League victory over the Warriors after taking a knock to the same knee but coach Steve Price said he was not unduly concerned and his medical staff have confirmed the good news.

A spokesman for Warrington’s performance team said: “The recent scan has shown that Ben Currie aggravated an old knee injury.
