HEROIC defence and classy Ben Currie were features of Tony Smith's reaction to Warrington Wolves' win at Wigan last night.

Currie scored the winning try after 10 months out with a torn ACL ligament but it was the back-rower's all-round game that caught the eye of his boss.

"Aside from his try, I thought he was terrific whether he scored or not," said Wolves' head of coaching and rugby.

"I thought he did everything that was asked of him plus more. It just shows the class that he's got.

"He just didn't look like he's been out for a year and not had had any trial games to get warmed up.

"He just looked right at home and it's great to have him back."

And reflecting on the team display Smith added: "I thought defensively we were outstanding there tonight.

"Wigan are always going to ask some questions of you but to limit them to the points we did was great.

"Wigan are very tenacious, they don't drop off and keep fighting right to the end as we've found out in a couple of other matches this year.

"So I was glad my boys were able to dig in for one another and come through. I thought they were outstanding defensively."
