It is champagne or tears for Warrington, says Wembley-hungry Ben Currie

Ben Currie admitted it is do or die for Warrington this Saturday as they aim to make it back to Wembley. 

The Wolves face Hull FC in the Challenge Cup semi-finals at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday, 2pm kick-off.

Saturday’s game will be a rematch of the 2016 final, when Warrington lost 12-10 against Hull and Currie agonisingly denied a try by Danny Houghton in the dying embers of the game.

The Wolves have made the last two finals at Wembley but have fallen short on both occasions – something which Steve Price’s men are looking to change this year.

Currie said: “If we lose this game, there’s no tomorrow so to speak.

“We won’t let it change our week too much, we’ve still got to prepare exactly the same. The only thing that changes this week is that come the final whistle, you are either bouncing around with champagne or you are in tears.

“This week means that little bit more and there’s no chance to fix it for the week after because it is a knockout competition but our plans will be exactly the same as the week before – to win the game.

“I want to get back to Wembley after what happened to me last time but also as a club, we’ve lost our last two there now so we definitely want to get back there and fix a few wrongs.”

Currie, 23, has enjoyed a strong year with Warrington so far, making 20 appearances after a couple of years struggling with injuries.

The England international is in good form at the moment, scoring four tries and assisting seven.

He added: “I’m just happy to be playing again regularly and getting that little bit more confident.

“I can feel myself getting better each week and hopefully towards the back end of the year, it’ll all just come together and finally click for me.

“I’m just enjoying being back out on the field playing with the lads instead of sitting in the crowd this year.

“We as a team have got to be consistent. We’ve beaten some of the top teams this year but then we’ve slipped up in some games so we need to start backing games up. We’ve got to be hungry every week.”
