Rugby is the ultimate warrior sport. Not only is it every bit as unforgiving as American football but there are way less pads… and probably less health insurance.
It’s safe to say that these dudes make all other athletes in the world look like complete pussies. They just have a different mentality than most other sports stars as they don’t do this for the money or endorsements but for the pride of the game.
However that’s not to say that they might not be all be a little crazy in the head. Just take a look at South African rugby player Ernst Joubert who suffered a truly nasty broken nose in a recent match.
While he walked away with a 27-16 victory, he also left with bones missing in his face. The most shocking part of this all is the fact that he was grinning from ear to ear when he decided to pose in post game picture.

While he is surely showing off some grit by shrugging this injury off, we would suggest he see a doctor. Whatever the case is, cheers mate!
