Rugby Star Has Testicle Removed After Refusing To Leave Game With Rupture Injury

Rugby Star Has Testicle Removed After Refusing To Leave Game With Rupture Injury
World

A rugby league star may have metaphorically had balls of steel, but anatomically did not, as he continued to play after rupturing one of his testicles during a cup final match.


Warrington Wolves prop forward Paul Wood calmly took himself to have his testicle removed after the game.

Mr Wood, who celebrates his 31st birthday on Wednesday, took a knee to the groin early in the second half of the match at Old Trafford, but finished the game and even appeared in a post match interview where he made no mention of his injury.

The worst part of the whole situation? His team LOST!
