England legend Brian Moore never took any prisoners on the pitch and he’s taken that viscous habit on to Twitter.
Bognor Regis goalkeeper Dan Lincoln got hurt during a 2-0 home defeat by Truro City.
Just being released from Hospital now. Feeling a little worse for wear, but thankfully no serious or long lasting damage. Just a few fresh battle wounds… Nothing like a bit of protection from the officials.. #sarcasm #uptherocks pic.twitter.com/asHF4UB4Of

The Rocks’ No 1 took to Twitter on Saturday to highlight some stud marks down his back. The image shows the ‘severity’ of the injuries.
But being a player who fought through the pain barrier time after time, Moore was less than impressed.
You went to hospitsl for a few rake marks? FFS. https://t.co/YdWcSFPY4W

The hooker built a reputation as one of the hardest players of the amateur era, the snarling ‘Pitbull’ packing down as England’s hooker in 64 Tests.
A loyal servant of Harlequins as well as Leeds, Richmond and Nottingham, Moore trained as a solicitor in Nottingham while pursuing his rugby career.
He won Grand Slams with England in 1991, 1992 and 1995 and played at the first three Rugby World Cups, including the final of the 1991 tournament.
