Australian-born and Irish qualified rugby player Haydn Peacock suffered the most terrifying injury during a game.
Peacock’s penis was almost torn off after a brutal tackle during a game between his French league team AS Carcassonne and St Esteve Catalans Dragons last February.
“The pain was all right and then at halftime I was like, I’ve got to have a look," recalled Peacok to sports blog French Footy. "I checked on it and the skin is half ripped off and I was like, ‘Shit, where’s the doctor? Where’s the doctor?’”
The funny thing was the 23-year-old still managed to play in the same game and was sent to the clinic soon after, where his penis required 11 stitches to be properly reattached.
Peacock also played for AS Carcassonne’s succeeding matches after undergoing an operation and despite the incident, he still refuses to wear a protective cup saying it will slow him down.
