Murdoch-Masila - I am having to carry a number of injuries

5th September 2019, 17:35 by Tom Hill

Warrington prop forward Ben Murdoch-Masila claims he is willing to "keep pushing himself" as he battles several injuries.

The Tonga international has helped Warrington win the Challenge Cup this season and Steve Price's men still have a chance of winning the Betfred Super League Grand Final in October.

Murdoch-Masila has been plagued by injury since he joined the club from Salford last year. He has recently had minor ankle surgery but has started the last two Super League games.

Despite carrying several knocks, Murdoch-Masila says he will battle on until he can have surgery in the post-season.

"These niggles are the ones that don't really go away because of playing each week," he told the Warrington Guardian. "We're managing that for now, but I am feeling better and feeling good in myself. It's just a case of putting that out on the field.

"As long as I'm on the field and am getting through the work I'm supposed to, I'm happy. I'm pretty happy doing the big minutes. I knew I had it in me, but the injuries come and go.

"They flare up a bit in some games. I just have to keep pushing myself, but I think I have been doing that of late and it's showing in my performances."
