They are renowned for carrying on playing with injuries, whether it is at elite level or in the grassroots ranks.

X-rays later revealed a broken jaw in TWO places, leaving family, friends and teammates on social media astounded with how he had just got on with the game.

Warrington Guardian:

The injury came from a clash of heads in a tackle with an Oldham player, not foul play.

Wood, 25, is a Latchford man and a former pupil at Cardinal Newman High School.

He has been with the club all his life, coming through the junior ranks to progress to where he is today. A previous young player of the year winner, he was showing great form this season until this injury.

Albion squandered a 12-point advantage to lose the game 17-14.
