THE selection of your Warrington Wolves team of the decade is almost complete.

As we get closer to the full team reveal in our Christmas edition, 10 of the 13 available spots are now locked in.

This week, we focus on the best to have played at left second row for The Wire between 2010 and the present day.

Three players to choose from, none of which would look out of place in your side.

Who gets in? You choose…


Joining a year after his brother Vinnie, the Anderson brothers would be at the heart of one of the club’s most successful periods in modern times.

Louis came to The Wire as an 18-cap New Zealand international and The Wire got the full benefit of his experience.

Powerful and dynamic, he helped Wolves to back-to-back Challenge Cup titles in 2009 and 2010, scoring a try in the latter final win over Leeds Rhinos at Wembley.

While he contributed his fair share of tries, he was just as keen to get involved in defence as he was attack.

When he left The Wire after helping them to the 2011 League Leaders’ Shield, Anderson had scored 24 tries in 104 appearances for the club.

He went on to have a long and successful spell with Catalans Dragons before retiring from the professional game in 2018.

IF Anderson’s departure left a big hole in the Wire team, they found a way to fill it in stature at least.

The imposing physical figure of Trent Waterhouse was often a sight that put the fear of God into right-edge defences.

With New South Wales and Australia representative honours under his belt, Wolves were signing a player of real prestige.

As well as consistently featuring high in the tackle charts due to his quietly effective work in defence, “House” came up with some crucial tries at critical moments.

A try at Wembley in the 2012 Challenge Cup Final win over Leeds was just the start, but it was perhaps that year’s historic Super League play-offs for which he is most remembered.

A virtuoso display that included two tries stunned St Helens to send Warrington to their first ever Super League Grand Final. We are still scratching their heads as to how he was not named man of the match that night.

Waterhouse ended his Wire career with 19 tries in 82 appearances before returning to Australia following the 2014 season.

A man who is still held up by many as the type of player Warrington’s academy should be producing.

Currie appeared set for superstardom before two devastating knee injuries – one after the other – sent him back to square one.

The task now is for him to build himself back up to the level that saw NRL clubs clamouring to take him Down Under.

His excellent handling and devastating speed made him feature highly among the club’s top tryscorers – he always seemed to find gaps in the opposition defence.

In fact, it was in the act of scoring his 21st try of the season against Wigan in the 2016 Super 8s that his injury nightmare started.

His return 10 months later was marked with a try, but in April 2018 he re-injured the same knee to make it two ACL injuries in as many years.

Having played most of 2019 injury-free and with a full pre-season under his belt, the hope now is that we will see the Ben Currie of old in 2020.

His Warrington record stands at 70 tries in 161 appearances in primrose and blue.
