NZ Warriors’ Chanel Harris-Tavita played with ruptured testicle in Storm loss

No one could accuse Chanel Harris-Tavita of not giving his all for the NZ Warriors in their humiliating loss to the Melbourne Storm.
Harris-Tavita has had surgery for a ruptured testicle which may sideline him for a month.
The injury came in the 34th minute of the Warriors’ 70-10 capitulation to the Storm in their annual Anzac Day game on Monday.
The 23-year-old isn’t expected to be back until some time next month.
In 1986, All Blacks captain Wayne Shelford played a test against France during which he suffered a torn scrotum.
Harris-Tavita’s injury leaves the Warriors desperately short of playmakers, while Josh Curran and Dallin Watene-Zelezniak were also casualties in the mauling by the Storm.
