Tough. As. Nails. What, you think he’s going to call for medical assistance and go cry in the locker room just because his kneecap is on the opposite side of his leg? Go watch some footie if that’s what you want to see. As long as Joe Westerman’s knee is still attached to his body, he’s carrying on playing. No questions asked.
Hilariously, Hull FC coach Lee Radford commented:
He does that every fortnight. It has genuinely come out on numerous occasions—he needs some ligaments in there somewhere.
