Ben Currie to see surgeon on Thursday over worrying knee problem

Warrington and England forward Ben Currie will visit a surgeon on Thursday to determine the extent of the knee injury suffered against Bradford on Saturday.

Currie limped off in the first half of the Wolves’ 54-6 Challenge Cup victory over the Bulls, with coach Steve Price confirming afterwards the forward has picked up a knock on the same knee which kept him out of the game for almost a year.

Price initially said Currie would discover the extent of the injury on Monday, but has now confirmed that he will see a surgeon on Thursday.

“He’s seeing the surgeon on Thursday, so we’ll know more then,” the Wolves coach said.

Price also admitted that Warrington are still not completely sure about the extent of the injury, with the Australian adding: “As of now, we’re still not 100 per cent about the outcome.”

Price will, however, receive a boost with forward Ben Murdoch-Masila ready to return from injury for Friday’s game with Huddersfield.

“Benny Murdoch will definitely play,” he said.

“He’s had two full training sessions with the team this week and has done a fair amount of rehab running. He’s ready and raring to go.”
