NRL Player Tried To Blend KFC While Recovering From A Facial Fracture

NRL Player Tried To Blend KFC While Recovering From A Facial Fracture

Recovery and rehab from injuries can be a tough time for professional athletes.

While they're itching to get back on the field with their teammates, it can often become a time where old habits come creeping back in - mainly bad eating habits.

And while the odd bit of comfort food is alright, Sia Soliola went to extreme lengths to ensure he got his fast food fix.

Believe it or not, but Canberra Raiders star Soliola says he tried to blend KFC so that he could digest it properly while recovering from a fractured face.

The bulldozing forward was taken to hospital in July following a nasty head clash with St George Dragons prop Blake Lawrie.

Doctors confirmed that Soliola had, in fact, fractured his face in several places which required 20 screws to fix it.

And - as is the case with most facial and nasal operations - Soliola was most likely told by doctors that he was required to eat food in liquid form through a straw in order to help with the healing process.

Milkshakes, yoghurts and fruit juices were all on the menu for Soliola for the foreseeable future - but that wasn't going to stop him from getting that 'Finger Lickin' Good' feeling.

"I actually tried to blend KFC," he told NRL.com.

The idea of blending some Wicked Wings, A Zinger Stacker and some famous KFC gravy sounds grim to say the least, but they weren't the only fast food options Soliola thought of throwing in the Nutribullet.

"It was all soft foods so everything had to be blended," Soliola added.

"I actually had the idea to blend KFC, pizza, a Big Mac or pretty much anything."

Thankfully, Soliola will be making his long-awaited return from injury this weekend - meaning he won't have to think about blending some of the Colonel's finest products ever again.
