Rugby League Star Dislocates Knee – Then Whacks It Back Into Place & Plays On

Oh my god.

Hull FC forward Joe Westerman left everyone absolutely stunned last night we when decided to repair his dislocated kneecap by slapping it back into place on the field – before getting up and playing on.

Television replays caught the 29-year-old back-rower pulling off the simply remarkable feat of bravery in the final minutes of his side’s 18-10 derby defeat against Hull KR.

His team were out of substitutes with the horror injury occurred, but rather than be stretchered off (like most humans) he slapped his knee back in place, regained his feet and ran to the next scrum before seeing out the match.

“He does that every fortnight.” coach Lee Radford said after the game.

“It has genuinely come out on numerous occasions – he needs some ligaments in there somewhere.”

“It’s a gladiator sport and we had no interchanges left so he stayed out there.”
