TOBY King has won the battle to start at right centre for The Wire against Catalans Dragons tomorrow.

The 21-year-old scored Warrington's first try in Friday's 13-12 defeat to Wigan, but played most of the game at second row as Mitch Brown came off the bench.

Brown put in a solid performance when he did come on – supplying the final pass for Josh Charnley's try.

However, he looks set to miss out on the matchday 17 at The Halliwell Jones Stadium after Wire head coach Price confirmed King will keep his place in the centres.

Price admits choosing between King and Brown was a difficult one for him.

"Toby will start, but Mitch is certainly putting a lot of pressure on," he said.

"The decision between them was very tough. I thought Mitch did really well when he came on at Wigan.

"Toby had to move over to the edge back row as we were a bit short in that area.

"They are both different in their own right."

Harvey Livett and Ben Pomeroy have recovered from knee and leg injuries respectively and will return to the matchday 17, but the game comes too early for Ben Murdoch-Masila to return from a knock of his own.

Livett is expected to start in his now familiar left second row position, with Pomeroy taking up a spot on the bench.

“Benny is getting very close. He’s doing everything right in his rehab but he’s not quite there yet,” he said.

“We’ll give him another week and then hopefully, he’ll be right to go.

“Harvey and Ben Pomeroy will come into the 17.

“They’ve come quicker than we expected, so that’s a credit to them and how hard they have worked in their rehab.”

Brown and George King look set to be the ones to miss out on a place in the final 17.
