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.
“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.”
Been watching rugby league for 15 years and never seen anything like this. In the @hullkrofficial vs @hullfcofficial derby Joe Westerman dislocates his kneecap, slaps it back in and jogs it off. They aren't human. pic.twitter.com/MWheBgznTS
