WATCH | The most bizarre Red Card in rugby history!

3. Manu Tuilagi

Tuilagi revealed this story in the lead up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup: “I used to put padding around my pubis and then strapped around it.

“It’s not nice — I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. I played five games with it being really painful. It was stupid.

“I pulled my adductor in my thigh but had no idea what an adductor felt like if you pulled it.

“I did it on the Thursday, played on the Saturday and strapped it up.

“I played five games with it — and it went higher and higher into my groin.

“At one stage I started strapping my pubis. The physio was like ‘What are you doing?’ I said ‘Er, nothing’.

“In the fifth game I got the ball in the first 20 minutes, went to accelerate and, bang, there was a loud pop and I couldn’t walk.

“I had pretty much dislocated my pubic bone.

“So I know how Ruaridh’s feeling. I said ‘keep your head, keep going and think positive’.

“At that moment there’s nothing anyone can say to make you feel better.

“But he will be back in a short period of time.”
