OUCH! Francois Hougaard recovering from broken nose

2015-03-04 20:00

They say rugby isn't a game for sissies and here's another example why: its given Francois Hougaard a bust nose!

Francois was in training yesterday when he was involved in a collision which left him with 3 stitches and a broken nose.

He took to Instagram a couple of hours later to post a picture of himself healing with an ice pack on his bust nose. He simply captioned the picture "Broken nose... Not happy  #brainfreeze#cantthinkstraight".

There's no word yet on whether his bust nose means he'll have to wear one of those funky face masks, but he should be fine to play this weekend.
