Yes you read the headline correctly.
During a recent game in Tucumán, Argentine rugby player Daniel Contreras got up from a ruck and to his horror, noticed that the top of one of his fingers was missing because an opponent had bitten it off!
“I couldn’t believe it,” Contreras said
“The referee asked me to leave the game so that the doctors could attend to my injury. I didn’t react too much because my wife and children were there.”
Despite finding the tip of his finger, doctors were unfortunately unable to reattach it because they were unsure about the level of bacteria in it after it had been on the ground.
