WARNING: Ex-Super League playmaker suffers horrific and graphic armpit tear

FORMER Super League playmaker Will Dagger has suffered a horrific and graphic armpit tear in York Knights’ 15-14 defeat to the Barrow Raiders at the weekend.

Dagger came off the field with what the York X page deduced was a shoulder injury just before half-time in the Championship clash between the Knights and the Raiders.

A stud from a Barrown player’s boot was said to have torn open his armpit with Dagger needing surgery and a number of stitches to repair the horrendous injury.

For those are squeamish, look away now as the 25-year-old’s injury is in full view in the photos below.
