Social media reacts to Joe Westerman slapping dislocated knee back in place

It’s often been said rugby league players are the toughest athletes in the world and last night Joe Westerman proved it.

With just three minutes to go in the Hull derby, the FC forward came out of a tackle with a dislocated knee.

It wasn’t one for the squeamish and as his knee, visibly out of place, dangled in the air Westerman proceeded to slap it back into place.

Then, once he had managed to successfully knock it back in, he picked himself up, hobbled about a bit and then played on for the remainder of the game.

Unsurprisingly the incident caused quite a reaction on social media with Hull coach Lee Radford claiming after the game that Westerman “does that every fortnight.”
