Rugby Star Ruptures Testicle...and Plays On

Rugby Star Ruptures Testicle...and Plays On, Warrington's brave Paul Wood played the entire rugby league Grand Final despite a horrific injury. Wood loses testicle in Grand Final, Remarkably, the prop played on after rupturing a testicle early in the second half of the match, which Warrington lost 26-18 to Leeds at Old Trafford. Wood even conducted media interviews after the game before going to hospital where he was operated on.

He tweeted late on Saturday night to fellow rugby league star Leon Pryce: "Ruptured my right testicle mate, got a knee 1 minute into the second half, had to have it removed tonight." He joked on Sunday: "Just coming out the hospital to go home... Seriously feel like I've left something???" The injury added to the pain of defeat as Warrington let a half-time lead slip as Leeds retained their Super League title.
