johnny Sattler of the South Sydney Rabbitohs came back for the second half
of the 1972 Rugby League Grand Final (I guess you Yanks won't know
what I'm talking about), after suffering a compound fracture of his jaw.
He was in danger of worsening the injury due to the fact that:
1) Rugby Leasgue players don't wear *** helmets,
2) Players from the opposition regularly stiff-armed opponents
around the *** area.
