Warrington Wolves forward Ben Currie is set to be out of action for a month after aggravating a knee injury during their win over Wigan Warriors.
The England international picked up the injury in their 2016 Challenge Cup Final defeat to Hull FC and spent 11 months out.
A spokesperson for the Wolves’ performance team confirmed the news, better than what many were fearing. “It’s just a case of waiting for the swelling to go down followed by rehab.”
The second rower has been key since breaking through for the Wolves in 2015 and his exploits earned him a first call up for England in the 2017 World Cup.
