I suspect the injury was picked up in the very early exchanges, in a tackle on the Leigh line which clearly left him feeling rough.
Yet he waved away treatment and just carried on.
Reminds me of the saying; "Footballers spend 90 minutes pretending that they're injured, Rugby League players spend 80 minutes pretending that they aren't".
Probably the most extreme case I've ever seen was Shaun Edwards with a broken eye socket at Wembley - he looked like the elephant man by the time he went off. His explanation afterwards was that he didn't want the opposition (think it was Warrington) to know he'd been hurt.
You don't have to be mad to play, but it helps....
