Today we present Exhibit 12,937 as to why professional rugby players are legitimately batshit insane people.
Rugby player David Gower of the Parramatta Eels of the NRL was playing in a recent game versus… never mind, it doesn’t matter who he was playing against. Dude broke his finger, no, dude suffered a compound fracture to his finger while making a tackle.
Compound fracture (definiton): An injury in which a broken bone pierces the skin, causing a risk of infection.
Naturally, once breaking the finger and seeing the bone, Gower went to the sidelines for some medical attention. He then immediately finished the game because CRAZY!!
