Rugby Player Scores, Immediately Has Face Ripped Open By Teammate's Cleat

This video is ancient in internet terms, nearly a week old—but fuck you, I like to catch up on my French rugby union news on Fridays.

This is Valentin Courrent, scrum-half for FC Grenoble, scoring a try early in the match only to pop up and get a boot in the face from a tumbling teammate. Courrent would have to head to the hospital to get 26 stitches.


There's a photo of Courrent's lip before getting stitched up. Warning: It's super gross. Click here if you want to see.
