Super League star explains bizarre reason for being taken off

Danny Walker was forced off the pitch for Warrington Wolves for one of the most bizarre reasons you will see.

The hooker was having a brilliant game having nailed a 40/20 before notching a key try.

However, he went off the pitch and straight to the dressing room with what Jon Wells described as “a lower leg injury” on Sky Sports.

It didn’t look good for the hooker but he soon returned in time to replace Daryl Clark after he suffered a head knock.

It was revealed that the hooker had been stung by a bee or a wasp and his leg had swollen up to the size of a balloon according to Wells.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Walker explained what happened:

“Honestly mate I have no idea, I just remember after one of the Huddersfield tries just feeling something on my left leg, looked down and had a golf ball there.

“The doctor said it was a bee but it could have been anything round here.”

Walker had been brilliant for Warrington lately and started ahead of Daryl Clark today.

He is seemingly the reason the Wolves are happy to let Clark join St Helens with Brad Dwyer expected to replace him and return to the Halliwell Jones Stadium from Hull FC after a spell at Leeds Rhinos and a move to the MKM since leaving Warrington at the end of 2017.
