10. Morgan Stoddart
During Wales’ opening World Cup warmup test against England in August, the Scarlets’ back suffered a broken left leg that required surgical repairs.
11. Ben Ross
Okay, so this one didn’t happen on the pitch. And Ben Ross plays rugby league, but the story is intense. Ross broke his arm live on air. It was supposed to be a playful arm-wrestle, but Wendell Sailor broke his arm.
12. Haydn Peacock
This one is actually from Rugby League and features the rather unfortunate Haydn Peacock who almost had his penis ripped off while playing for French side AS Carcassonne in February. The Australian required 11 stitches in the wound but wasn’t shy about sharing his misery with the world.
