And he still refuses to play with a cup!
Haydn Peacock spoke out recently about suffering a torn penis during a rugby match. The injury required 11 stitches, the Telegraph reported.
Peacock, 23, who plays for French team AS Carcassonne, posted a dramatic photo of his being pulled down by his privates as he screams in agony during a February match against St Esteve Catalans Dragons.
But the real shocker came in the locker room.
"The pain was all right and then at halftime I was like, I’ve got to have a look," he told the French Footy blog in an item posted March 11. "I checked on it and the skin is half ripped off and I was like, ‘Shit, where’s the doctor? Where’s the doctor?’ "
The doctor sent him to a clinic that night to be treated. Peacock showed his teammates the damage to laughs all around and said he had to "strap it up" for the next game.
"#rugbyleague is definitely not a sport I recommend," he wrote in an Instagram post featuring the photo. "11 stitches later for the little fella but she'll be right."
Despite the close call, Peacock still refuses to play with a protective cup, telling French Footy it impedes his ability to run.
