Tony Clubb has played 75 games, scoring 12 tries

Wigan Warriors prop Tony Clubb is to have a kidney removed to allow him to play without pain following a complication with the organ.

Clubb, 29, was ruled out for the season with an “ongoing medical problem” earlier this week.

There is a kink in the tube connecting his kidney that killed the organ off, leaving its removal as the best option.

“I didn’t want to be in pain any more and I also knew it was starting to affect my rugby,” Clubb said.

He added to the club’s official website
