Reality TV 'star' Jamie Laing was taken to hospital yesterday after coming out the wrong side of a bone crushing tackle from former Leinster player Brad Thorn.
The Made In Chelsea was careering across the pitch during the Rugby Aid For Heroes 2015 charity game in Twickenham when he crashed into the former lock for the All-Blacks and was hurled onto his back. Thorn was, probably fairly, sent to the sin-bin for the tackle.

In situations like this, we'd normally proffer some stick-to-the-day-job advice. But Laing actually showed some flair throughout the game.
Thankfully, Laing documented his evening in hospital with updates on his social media accounts to keep his fans in the loop on his recovery.
