Our rugby days were short; numbered after a hard fall as a kid during summer camp one day. But we find it hard not to like a sport where brawny men wrap their arms around each other and rock back and forth (they call this a “scrum,” no?) only to be followed by spine-bending, bone-crushing hits.
And sometimes hits that leave a tooth in your head without you even knowing it.
Ben Czislowski was playing for Brisbane team Wynnum during the April 1 incident involving Tweed Heads forward Matt Austin. He had a head wound stitched up afterward, the Australian Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Czislowski later suffered an eye infection and complained of lethargy and shooting pains in his head.
Then last week, his doctor found a tooth embedded in Czislowski’s head.
We have an inkling the tooth will be available on eBay shortly.
