Rugby Player Goes Viral After His Penis Almost Gets Ripped Off During A Match
This article first featured on TheLADbible
I always knew when my PE teacher at school was desperately short of players for the rugby team, because he'd ask if I was available to play. He knew I didn't want to but he'd ask anyway.
Being a sportsman in my youth, he knew I could play rugby, I just didn't like it because it involved guys much bigger and much heavier than me smashing into me at great force. And I am just not into voluntarily getting myself hurt.
This story has confirmed that rugby was, is, and never will be, the sport for me.
Haydn Peacock, an Australian rugby league player in the French Federation of Rugby League Elite 1, almost had his penis ripped right off during a match.
The 23-year-old second-row forward required surgery and 11 stitches to repair the damage, after an opponent grabbed his penis to tackle him and pulled down with such force, it almost tore his dangler clean off.
Incredibly, the moment it happened was caught perfectly by a photographer pitch-side, and Peacock was able to post it on Instagram after being released from hospital.
Not the best reason to be on the front page of the paper this morning. #rugbyleague is definitely not a sport I recommend. 11 stitches later for the little fella but she'll be right

Like a true masochist-LAD, Peacock carried on for AS Carcassonne until half-time, when he finally realised the extent of the damage.
"At half-time I was like, I've got to have a look, I checked on it and the skin was half ripped off and I was like, shit, where's the doctor? Where's the doctor?" he told freelance journalist Guy Williams.
"He (the opposition player) made a tackle by reaching out and grabbing my dick, he got a hold of my dick with one hand and pulled me down."
And this, kids, is why if you're a pussy (read: Smart guy) like me, you don't play rugby. I want each and every part of my body, especially my little guy, in tact.
