Pierre Mignoni dislocated finger and Joe Van Niekerk try

Toulon put in a great performance yesterday as they beat rivals Clermont 28-16 in their Top 14 meeting at the Stade Mayol. Pierre Mignoni dislocated his finger, but continued on, and Joe Van Niekerk scored a nice try. Both clips are featured here.

Jonny Wilkinson looked back to his best form as he kicked twenty three points to add to captain Van Niekerk’s try as Toulon took up fifth place on the table, no doubt making them more comfortable after their recent showings.

Clermont themselves haven’t looked great so far this season, as the champions have only four wins out of seven matches.

Toulon scrumhalf Mignoni dislocated his finger during the match, resulting in the team physios having to come on the field and jerk in back into place. It’s always interesting watching how they do it, and seeing the player’s reactions. Intense pain, but once it’s in it’s not too bad, and as you will see in the clip, Mignoni continued on.

The Van Niekerk try came from a crazy period of play which included fullback Rory Lamont looking like he was knocked out, but somehow getting back in play to provide the scoring pass after a neat change of angle from the Toulon skipper.

As for flyhalf Wilkinson, he kicked five penalties, two drop goals, and converted the try, taking him to second highest points scorer of the season. Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal has since stated that he looks back to the form of 2003.

"Wilkinson is one of the best outside-halves in the history of rugby, he showed that today. We rediscovered the Jonny of the 2003 vintage. It's a Jonny who, in my eyes, is much stronger than last season," he said.

"I have people who have private boxes at Mayol stadium and who come by private jet from London when Jonny Wilkinson plays," Boudjellal added.

The two clips are presented as a playlist. If you're not interested in seeing the dislocation, you can skip to the try. Alternatively, the second clip will play automatically as soon as the first is finished. If you have any other requests from the weekend, please post them here.

  • @Staff: It was in the stade Velodrome in Marseille, and Clermont did score a try at the 13'.

  • it wasnt the only try of the game, Fofana scored a try for Clermont

  • Do we really have to see dislocations? Where is the pleasure in seeing this? I find it a complete turn off, not least after suffering some severe dislocations myself. There is enough quality content on your site without this stuff.

  • @RD : Fofana scored a beautiful try for Clermont. Do you have the clip?

  • My mistake in the wording, I meant Toulon's only try.

    @ Matt W, it was requested more than once, so I obliged. A try was offered up as an alternative to watching the clip of Mignoni squirming.

    No, you don't. You could not watch the video

  • The question is : did Parra break Mignoni's fingers on purpose ? How does it look for you ?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 19, 2010 9:56 pm  

  • obviously Parra wouldn't have wilfully broken his finger. however, it seems that he kind of twisted his fingers. The two of them spent the whole game fighting like kids.
    Obviously he didn't want that to hurt THAT much, and, well...it's all fair enough, scrumhalves always bother and tease each other, and Mignoni didn't blame him one second.

  • have to agree with Matt W. Who goes out of their way to see that ?

    "wilko back to his best"

    would be good to see some clips of his season so far

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 20, 2010 7:14 am  

  • I'd have to say that Mignoni is a bit of a badass if he had his finger dislocated, then popped back into place, taped up, then played on...especially considering he's a scrumhalf.

    As for those taking offense to the clip...you could try not watching it? Although, it's not as though it was a particularly gruesome or threatening injury, so I'm not sure what the big deal is.

  • RD would be good if you could put up Italian team Bennetton Treviso's win over an Irish team in the Magners League, here are some links http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6TqZdDk-hU


    I think it might've been their first win over an Irish province ever but not sure.

  • Anonymous...there's a request section for a reason. I hadn't seen the Treviso match yet, so thanks for giving up the result....

  • poor guy with the finger, but does anyone else notice that the french backs defence is at times non existant?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 20, 2010 10:57 am  

  • crazy but great try

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 20, 2010 11:02 am  

  • Anonymous, every teams make defensive mistakes. I don't know if Clermont's defense is non existant, but considering that only three tries have been scored against them in 7 matches...

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 20, 2010 1:34 pm  

  • Ouch - not doubt I would be skipping like a kangaroo too if in a similar situation...

    Must day prefer the rugby to the injury spotting

    By Anonymous NiWiTa, at September 20, 2010 1:58 pm  

  • Parra clearly twisted his fingers, but he couldn't have meant to injure the player and stop the game; just to give him a little pain to distract him is all...

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 20, 2010 5:16 pm  

  • Every time I see a man complaining on a rugby field after an injury, I remember the one and only Wayne "Buck" Shelford and his ripped testicle playing against France.

    There's pain for you, Pierre!

    Although well played for him staying on the field. Playing against his former team must have been superb.

    mignoni was a pussy

  • How's he a pussy, you idiot? The guy in your story had a dislocated finger as well, then played on. How's that different from Mignoni?
