‘The bone came out’: Warriors youngster ignores pain of compound fracture to help defeat Bulldogs

[ad_1] News Post || News Now:

Warriors five-eighth Ronald Volkman is set to have surgery on his finger after playing through the pain of a compound fracture in his team’s win over Canterbury.

Volkman played on after seeing his bone split through his skin in the first half of the Warriors’ 24-12 win at Stadium Australia on Friday night.

The 20-year-old opted against having a painkilling needle at half-time, given his finger was already going numb, before scoring the match-sealing try for the Warriors.


Volkman was due to undergo surgery on Saturday but was hopeful of playing in the Warriors’ next match against Brisbane in a fortnight after the club’s bye.

“It was just a little compound fracture on my (ring) finger on my left hand,” Volkman said.

“It was bleeding all day, but it was all good.

“I just strapped it back up. It’s all good.”
