No pain, no gain

A RUSH of blood and a dash at the try line was the cause of a bone shat­ter­ing clash be­tween Ofamooni Ta­ufa and three Monto Roo de­fend­ers.

Driven into the ground just short of the line, it drew a roar from the crowd, but left Ta­ufa reel­ing on the ground.

Ta­ufa re­turned to the bench as his shoul­der was dis­lo­cated and he was in ex­treme pain.

And then, to the amaze­ment of the team medic and every­one in­volved, in­clud­ing this cam­era man, a team mem­ber took Ta­ufa’s arm, pulled it over his shoul­der, pulled it out and then put it back into place.

Ta­ufa then had to be told that he couldn’t re­turn to the field, as he was ready to go back on.
