Warrington fear worst over knee injury to forward Ben Harrison

Warrington fear that forward Ben Harrison could miss the rest of the season with a suspected ruptured anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The club are also awaiting a verdict on Harrison's team-mate Simon Grix, who suffered a knee injury in Saturday's 32-22 win at Huddersfield.

"With Grix, it looks like his medial," said Warrington coach Tony Smith.

"But Harrison is more serious. It looks like he's done his ACL. Benny's a bit shattered in there," he added.

"It's a blow for both boys, but that's part and parcel of our sport."

It is the second season running that former Huddersfield coach Smith has been left counting the cost of a meeting with his old club.

In last year's campaign opener against the Giants at the Millennium Stadium, Warrington lost five men to injury, including Grix, who suffered a dead leg in his side's 28-18 defeat.

While Harrison, 24 next week, would almost certainly be out for the season if Warrington's fears are proved correct, Grix is expected to be sidelined for several weeks.
