BEN Currie will see a specialist about the pectoral injury that kept him out of the Challenge Cup victory over St Helens.

With the pack already missing the suspended Paul Vaughan and the injured Zane Musgrove, Sam Burgess’ forwards were dealt a further blow as the in-form Currie was ruled out of the game at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

It mattered not as The Wire ran out impressive 31-8 victors but when asked whether or not they will have to do without the England international, who has excelled since being moved to loose forward from the back row, for an extended period, Burgess insisted they will take things week-by-week.

“He’ll see a specialist on Monday,” he said.

“He’s been a huge part of our success and growth so we missed him, but I thought Jordy Crowther and Joe Philbin coming back in were immense.

“With Ben, we’re taking it a week at a time with him. Hopefully it’s nothing too serious but we’ll have to wait and see.”

Vaughan will be available again after suspension for Saturday’s return to Super League action against Leigh Leopards, but Musgrove will miss several weeks with an ankle injury.

Thankfully, however, it appears no injuries of any note were sustained at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

“I think we came through today relatively okay,” Burgess said.

“Just a few bumps and bruises but nothing drastic, which is good.”
