Rugby league star Johnson reveals he lost a TESTICLE in a freak training ground incident after it exploded
JACK JOHNSON is rewriting the saying, ‘playing rugby league takes balls of steel,’ after being left with only one after a painful injury.
For the Newcastle Thunder player was left in hospital after a testicle exploded in training.
The winger suffered the excruciating issue during Thursday’s session with the Championship club.
And after being rushed to hospital, the 23-year-old had it removed.
Johnson revealed on Friday: “What a load of b******s.
“Not my greatest Thursday ever with the old testicle exploding at training. Had it removed last night.
“Will be back soon, just a little bit lighter and as the saying goes, Rugby League wins again.”
Despite his pain and the operation, Johnson is seeing the funny side to his problem.
He even had a cheeky question after his trauma.
He added, perhaps hopefully: “PS does the swelling stay? Asking for a friend.”
