It hasn't been a great season for Donncha O'Callaghan with his new club. The newly promoted Worcester Warriors have suffered three losses in their opening five games - and things weren't good on Saturday as Saracens thoroughly disposed of them 48-18.
But O'Callaghan and most of his team-mates didn't have as bad a time as Worcester's South African prop Nicholas Schonert. The 24-year-old was the victim of a stray boot at the bottom of a ruck, and posted the damage on twitter afterwards. It's not clear whose boot did the damage, but Schonert seems to be pointing at promising Saracens forward Maro Itoje:
You can see all of the blood on his shirt as well. Thankfully, the injury has been patched up nicely. Schonert did acknowledge that the damage was accidental:
I feel a bit queasy.
