Friday Funnies - Nathan Sharpe loses a tooth

Earlier in the week you saw a clip of a player getting his nose smashed by a stray boot while making a tackle. This clip today shows how the same thing happened to Wallaby lock Nathan Sharpe last weekend, except he actually lost his tooth.

While I’ve named it a Friday Funny, it may be a bit strange to laugh at such an occurrence but there’s a bit of humour there in that his tooth was knocked out during the game and had to be searched for by six members of the Suncorp Stadium ground staff after full time.

It happened when Bok center Jaque Fourie made a break and Sharpe - who will equal the record of John Eales this weekend for most caps earned by a Wallabies lock – lunged at his feet to make the tackle.

Unfortunately he copped the boot in the face, ripping, or knocking one of his molars out in the process and onto the turf, as can be seen in the slow mo on this video. The ground staff incredibly managed to find the tooth, returning it to Sharpe in the changeroom.

Instead of celebrating the great win with his mates, he was whisked off to a dentist to have it put back in. The procedure seems to have been a success, and he’ll be turning out for his country again tomorrow, this time against the All Blacks.

Have a good weekend and make sure you catch all the Tri Nations, Currie Cup, and ITM Cup action. If you spot anything you think should be posted on here, be sure to get in touch via the contact page or in the requests section. Cheers.

  • How many of you fools ask the same question.'Where was his mouthguard' ?
    Its obviously not in his fucking mouth then is it !!!

  • Saying that, going by recent events. I reckon both should get life ban for well, lets call this a eye/ tooth gouge tip tackle with a boot. Very serious stuff. Bring on the citing commish !!

    By Blogger Jay, at July 30, 2010 10:40 pm  

  • I'd say tack on another 4 week suspension for Jaque. This type of play shouldn't be allowed on the pitch and this cheating by the springboks is not acceptable.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at August 02, 2010 4:16 pm  

  • Mouthguards dont protect teeth, they stop vibration and reduce brain injuries.... Muppets.

    Seriously though, Fourie is deserved of at least another 4 week ban. LOL

  • Anonymous said... Mouthguards dont protect teeth .. Muppets.

    If your child plays a contact sport, or one in which he could collide with a hard surface (think ice skating, basketball, bicycling, skateboarding, and so on), he needs a mouthguard. This flexible mold covers the upper teeth and can help prevent broken teeth, as well as cuts and bruises to the lips, tongue, and inside of cheeks.
    ("Protecting Teeth with Mouthguards". Journal of the American Dental Association, Vol. 137, December 2006.)

    So who's the muppet?

  • I hope blokes are kidding but I feel one or two are serious about citing Jacques. Stuff happens, it's a contact sport and u don't wear a mouthgard on ur bottom teeth, just a fluke hit. Pity it wasn't Sharpes front tooth, might of improved his look.

    By Blogger Orka, at August 23, 2010 4:33 am  

  • I know it hasn't been asked in a while... but where was his mouthguard??????

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 08, 2010 1:10 pm  

  • That has got to hurt. That was a pretty stiff kick to the face. Accidental, yes. But it's rugby. Nuff said.

    I've watched a few rugby games on cable TV back when I was still in West Columbia. I've never seen a game with a kick to the face, though. Again, that has got to hurt. Well, I hope that the dental clinic where he was brought was able to put the tooth back in place.

  • Looks like Nathan's lost his wife too and picked himself up a new lady friend if what I saw on Sunday outside of Suncorp is anything to go by.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at February 23, 2011 7:26 am  

  • Wouldn't surprise me. So many Rugby players cheat on their wives. Didn't Sharpe win a father of the year award. lol. I guess we can add him to the long list of 'players' like Andries Bekker.

    What I don't understand is the mentality behind the girls (groupies) that get involved. Don't they care that they are home wreckers. Probably not!

    I guess it is a sign of the times. Sucks hey :(

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at February 24, 2011 10:27 am  

  • So are you claiming that Nathan Sharpe is cheating on his wife and kids?

    Surely not! You might want to double check your facts.
