Currie’s nightmare season could be over

Wigan Warriors 10-16 Warrington Wolves

Warrington have been dealt a blow ahead of their Qualifiers campaign with the news that second-rower Ben Currie may not return this season.

It’s another setback for the 23-year-old who only returned two weeks ago after 10 months out with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Currie aggravated the injury during the first half of last Thursday’s match against Widnes and did not return for the second period.

Wolves head coach Tony Smith says that it is too early to say whether he will return or not this season, but has ruled him out of at least the next two games.

It is thought that the damage caused won’t require an operation, with Currie hopeful on a quick turnaround after his latest setback.

Warrington, who won the league leaders’ shield in 2016, are currently preparing to play in the Qualifiers after finishing ninth in Super League.
