Super League: Warrington Wolves' Joel Monaghan plays through pain
Warrington boss Tony Smith revealed Joel Monaghan played on despite dislocating his jaw in the Wolves' 36-20 win over Salford.
The Australian winger was injured scoring a try just before the break at the Halliwell Jones Stadium to help Warrington into a 22-6 interval lead.
Smith said: "Joel dislocated his jaw after a clash of heads scoring his try. But it had gone back in place by the time he got back to the changing rooms."
Chris Bridge's try and six goals were instrumental in Warrington claiming their seventh successive win - and he and Monaghan were joined in try-scoring activity by Gene Ormsby, Ryan Atkins, Rhys Evans and Ben Currie.
Smith added: "It was an ugly win but we got there in the end. We were way off in the first 20 minutes and not on our game but fixed it up a bit.
"It was frustrating and earlier in the season we probably wouldn't have come up with a win.
"Our defence was mostly good apart from a try from dummy half and two from kicks. We were a bit off the mark and not in full flow.
"But there was no lack of effort and both Ben Harrison and Ben Westwood were fantastic.
"Mickey Higham had his moments and Matty Russell looked dangerous.
"Ryan Atkins was incredible in defence and I felt one of his hits from the stand. It was a ripper."
Salford boss Iestyn Harris felt the game was there for Salford's taking but conceded that his side was not clinical enough to clinch victory.
He said: "We didn't challenge Warrington as much as we could have done. There wasn't a whole lot in it but they took their opportunities and we didn't.
"The game should have been closer but we didn't do great things with the ball.
"Niall Evalds did really well and is a real talent for the future."
Salford lost Gareth Hock and Theo Fages with groin and ankle injuries at training on Saturday with Logan Tomkins suffering a shoulder injury in the second half, while Warrington's Ben Evans picked up a worrying ankle injury.
