    Ouch! Warrington Wolves: Paul Wood has testicle removed

    BBC Sport - Warrington Wolves: Paul Wood has testicle removed

    Warrington Wolves prop Paul Wood has had a testicle removed after rupturing it in Saturday's Grand Final defeat by Leeds Rhinos.
    Wood suffered the injury at the start of the second half but played on before going to hospital after the match.
    He tweeted: "Ruptured my right testicle, got a knee 1 minute into the second half, had to have it removed."
    The 30-year-old added: "Just coming out the hospital to go home... Seriously feel like I've left something?"
    Despite his heroics, the Wolves were unable to claim their first title since 1955 as they lost 26-18 to the defending champions.
    Wigan-born Wood is not the first sportsman to sustain a painful injury in the line of duty.
    Last season, Blackburn Rovers defender Scott Dann suffered a similar injury and was ruled out for six weeks.
    Also in 2011-12, Gillingham's Chris Whelpdale split his scrotum in a Boxing Day win over Crawley. The winger was able to take to the field just four days later in a defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge.
    In 1986, New Zealand number eight Wayne Shelford sustained a torn scrotum during a ruck in a match against France.
