Warrington coach Steve Price has confirmed that Ben Currie will miss the rest of the season after suffering an ACL injury.

The 23-year-old suffered a second anterior cruciate knee ligament injury in last weekend’s fifth round Challenge Cup victory over Bradford Bulls.

And Price has revealed that Currie will undergo surgery on Wednesday, while confirming that he will not play again in 2018.

He said: “Ben Currie is going in for an ACL operation on Wednesday, which is unfortunate.

“He won’t play again this year. He’ll come back bigger and stronger though; he has many good years left.

“He’ll be looked after by our footy club. He’s held in high regard. He’s a quality person and we know he’ll do everything he can to get back as quickly as he can but it’s important he gets it right.

“I have all the confidence in our high performance staff to get him right for next year.”

Currie has reacted to the news on Twitter, he tweeted: “Tough to take this news… Rather get it sorted for good tho than keep having little setbacks! Long journey ahead, but I will be back!”
