Sick head clash Sydney Roosters star Victor Radley bled from a nasty gash during his concussion against the Broncos on Thursday night.
Radley started the game brilliantly to give the Roosters an early lead against a porous Brisbane defence. But on 18 minutes, Radley tackled Brisbane hurler Jake Turpin – only for the two to accidentally butt heads.
When Turpin pulled the 24-year-old out, Radley’s bloodied face was revealed – and he looked a lot different than before.

A deep gash above his eye bled profusely in a steady stream, and when the cock was laid down his face, arms, and clothes were all smeared with claret.
Radley was taken off the field for emergency treatment, but soon returned to the field after passing an HI and receiving six stitches.
“His shorts definitely need a napi-san,” Warren Smith told Fox League. “His shorts are now red, white and redder!”
But with two minutes left in the game, Radley was sent off again for further treatment after a collision with Broncos tryscorer Corey Oates – despite his vocal complaints.
Smith added: “He always earns his money the hard way, doesn’t he? Victor the Guardian!
