Default Rugby player loses testicle after final defeat
British rugby league player Paul Wood has lost a testicle after a collision during the English sport's showpiece final at Manchester's Old Trafford stadium on Saturday.


Wood was playing for the Warrington Wolves against Leeds Rhinos in the Super League Grand Final.


The prop sustained the injury one minute into the second half, but managed to play the rest of the match before seeking treatment.


Despite Wood's determined effort, Warrington lost the match 26-18 to 2011 champions Leeds.


Just coming out the hospital to go home... Seriously feel like I've left something?

"Ruptured my right testicle, got a knee one minute into the second half, had to have it removed," tweeted the 30-year-old father of two.
Showing his sense of humor remained intact, he later tweeted: "Just coming out the hospital to go home... Seriously feel like I've left something?


"Tony Smith (Warrington coach) did say in his pre-match team talk last night 'your balls are on the line here guys!' I didn't think he meant literally."
Rugby League is similar to Rugby Union, although each team has 13 players rather than 15.


In addition to being played in Britain, the sport is also popular is Australia and New Zealand.

I've definitely heard this one before. Rugby is a **** manly sport.

"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."
