Warrington hand talented Currie long-term deal

Warrington Wolves’ second rower Ben Currie has agreed a new and improved four-year deal with the club.

The 20-year-old has signed an extended deal to keep him at the Wolves until November 2019.

He made his first-team debut as a 17-year-old back in April 2012, and has gone on to make 76 appearances crossing for 31 tries to date.

He has been ever-present this season; switching to loose forward and centre where needed.

Currie represented Ireland in Rugby League World Cup 2013 but his recent form this season has seen talks of a potential England cap come to the fore.

On his new contract, Currie said: “I’m really happy with the deal. It was good of Warrington to come in early before my contract’s finished. I’m still a young lad and I don’t want to look anywhere else. I’m really happy at Warrington at the moment so I am glad to commit my future here for the next four years.

“I love playing under Tony. He’s been here since I broke through at 17 and it’s my fourth season now and he’s done a lot for me.

“Warrington is one of the top clubs. You know year on year you are going to be challenging for cups and the top four play-offs. We’ve got a good youth team too. There are a lot of young players coming through and being given their chance; the likes of Joe Philbin, George and Toby King, and Dec Patton so it looks good for the future.”
