BEN Currie is progressing well in his recovery from a serious knee injury but is not yet ready to make a first-team return for Warrington Wolves.

The second rower has not played since last April after suffering a second anterior cruciate ligament injury in as many years in the Challenge Cup victory over Bradford Bulls.

However, Friday’s game against Huddersfield Giants comes too soon for him and head coach Steve Price says no date has been set for his return.

“Ben is doing really well. He’s still got a few more boxes to tick and we haven’t set a date for his return yet,” he said.

“Once the high performance staff feel like he’s ready to go, we’ll lock him in but he’s still got a bit of graft to do yet.

“He’s been doing a lot of contact training, volume-based training and repeated speed. All of that needs to continue.”

Price reported no new injuries in the camp ahead of the trip to the John Smith’s Stadium.

Toby King is available again after serving a one-match suspension, while Ben Westwood will sit out Friday’s game as he serves the final game of his own two-match ban.

“We’ve got no new injuries. We’re all healthy and I have some decisions to make, which is good,” he said.

“The boys have come back in really good shape. They look fresh and it’s been showing in training.”

While most of the first-team squad enjoyed some time off, four of The Wire’s fringe players played on dual registration for Rochdale Hornets on Saturday.

Pat Moran started at loose forward in the 42-12 defeat at Toulouse Olympique while Sitaleki Akauola, Matt Davis and Luis Johnson all featured off the bench, with Akauola scoring a try.
