We all know Rugby League players are tough blokes – and Wigan Warriors prop Tony Clubb has added further strength to the argument with his latest revelation.
Clubb, who made 25 Super League appearances for the Warriors in 2015, has revealed that the spent the whole season playing with a nasty-sounding injury – which actually left him unable to bend his arm.
He revealed he was suffering from some floating bone in his arm, which he picked up all the way back in pre-season last year and he played through the pain barrier with.
However, the injury has been fixed up thanks to surgery, and Clubb, in true Rugby League fashion, admitted that the gruesome injury was starting to “annoy” him, so he opted for the surgery.
“I had some floating bone in my arm and it would get stuck so I couldn’t bend my arm,” he told the club’s official website.
“I’ve had that sorted now so now I can actually bend my arm! I played the full year with it, I did it in America (pre-season camp) last year and it was starting to annoy me a bit towards the end of the year so I just had it cleaned out.
“It wasn’t too bad to play with, I don’t need to pass the ball, I’m a front-rower!”
