Warrington Wolves Injury Update for Challenge Cup Quarter-Final

Rugby League News: Warrington Wolves’ Injury Update Ahead of Challenge Cup Tie

In a weekly press conference, Warrington Wolves coach Sam Burgess provided a comprehensive injury update on his squad ahead of their upcoming Challenge Cup quarter-final matchup against St Helens this Sunday.

The good news for the Wire is that they will be boosted by the returns of centre Toby King, who has recovered from a soft tissue injury, and forward Joe Philbin, who has passed his head injury assessment (HIA). However, the team will be without prop Zane Musgrove, who suffered an ankle injury that is expected to sideline him for 4-5 weeks.

Burgess also revealed that Ben Currie is a major doubt for the quarter-final clash. The coach stated,

“Ben’s in doubt for this week. He picked up a bit of a funny niggle. I’m not ruling him out just yet but I can’t say he’s 100 per cent.”

Currie had put in an impressive man-of-the-match performance in Warrington’s win over Leeds Rhinos last week, and the team values his contributions. Burgess acknowledged that if Currie is unable to play, it would be a significant loss, but it would also provide an opportunity for someone else to step up.

The Warrington Wolves will be hoping to have as many key players available as possible when they take on the reigning Super League champions, St Helens, in the Challenge Cup quarter-final this Sunday at the Totally Wicked Stadium. The outcome of this match could have a significant impact on the team’s season aspirations.
