    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.
    Wood is not the first sportsman to suffer 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 winger Chris Whelpdale split his scrotum in a Boxing Day win over Crawley. The Gills man 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.

      Sweet baby jesus and the orphans.

        Bloody hell, nearly lost my weetabix reading these horror stories
        "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

        Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

          One of the lads at home was playing a junior hurling game about 5 years ago. Got the sliotar bang on.

          He tried to get up, and then passed out.

          Woke up in the Regional about 6 hours later minus one nut. Turns out the sliotar shattered one into pieces.

          He's still managed to father 3 kids since mind....

            Anyone ever hear the urban myth about the rugby player who dislocated his hip and when they put it back they caught one of his testicles, his screaming snapped one of his vocal chords.

                Didnt Joe Quaid stop a penalty with one a few years back and had to have it removed afterwards?

                  I've heard similar stories from the climbing and sailing circles. It must be a common thing...

                    I heard it from one of the Leinster doctors that went to Leo Cullens aid after he had got a good shoeing. His testicle was outside his sack. He pointed it out to the ref who nearly got sick. Cullen went off got sewn up and manfully played on.

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Shelford

                      Shelford made his Test debut for the All Blacks later that year against France in a 19–7 victory in Toulouse, and then was a notable victim of the infamous "Battle of Nantes" in the second Test. Roughly 20 minutes into the match, he was caught at the bottom of a rather aggressive ruck, and an errant French boot found its way into Shelford's groin, somehow ripping his scrotum and leaving one testicle hanging free. He also lost four teeth in the process. Incredibly, after discovering the injury to his scrotum, he calmly asked the physio to stitch up the tear and returned to the field before a blow to his head left him concussed. He was substituted and watched the remainder of the game from the grandstand where he witnessed the All Blacks lose 16–3. To this day Shelford has no memory of the game

                      ... Shelford and his wife Joanne have two children, Lia (born 1981) and Eruera (born 1985), and also adopted his god-son Mitchell Haapu (born 1987).
