THREE Warrington Wolves players left the field against Salford Red Devils with injuries.

Ben Murdoch-Masila will have a scan on a lower-leg injury tomorrow after pulling up in the warm-up.

That meant he played no part in the 30-14 win against his former club and a late change saw George King start the game on the bench in his place.

Ben Pomeroy, a replacement for Harvey Livett in the left second-row spot in only his second Wire game of the year, was replaced midway through the first half due to an 'upper leg strain'.

Toby King, on his comeback game after hamstring trouble, went off with a head knock and his exit left half-back/hooker Dec Patton filling in at centre for a spell.

Warrington Guardian:

Wolves head coach Steve Price said: "We lost Benny Murdoch in the warm-up so that threw us out a little bit with our interchanges.

"We lost Ben Pomeroy early on in the game too.

"So we had blokes playing out of position, and Declan went over to the centres.

"We found a way. Credit to Salford, I thought they had a big crack but we’re pleased to get the two points.”

Price confirmed his reasoning behind leaving out skipper Chris Hill and fellow England international Stefan Ratchford, who had been ever-presents but helped their country to victory over New Zealand in testing conditions in Denver, USA, last Saturday.

“That was my choice," said Price.

"They definitely wanted to play.

"With the amount of flying, the altitude, the amount of load through the week and the game, I just thought it was smart to give them a rest and get them right for Wigan next Friday."
