The versatile 23-year-old was a surprise inclusion in Wayne Bennett's World Cup squad as he is yet to make a senior appearance for the country of his birth.

However, the second-rower did feature during England's warm-up triumph over a Combined Affiliated States team on Friday, although he did not play in his usual position.

Currie admits he is happy to play anywhere as long as it secures him a place in England's starting line-up for their World Cup opener against Australia next Friday.

"I've played centre plenty of times throughout my career at Warrington," he said. "I'm very happy to play any position Wayne Bennett wants me to play.

"Just to get my England debut, I'll play prop, wing or off the bench, I'll do anything. I'm versatile and can fill a few positions which I feel will help me."

Currie, who played against England for Ireland at the 2013 World Cup, has had his fair share of disappointment when it comes to missing out on international selection, as injury ruled him out of last year's Four Nations campaign, while he was a non-playing member of Steve McNamara's England squad for the 2015 series against New Zealand.

"I was gutted," he recalled. "I don't want to do that again, just be there to train, I want to take part and hopefully be part of bringing the cup home."
