Brisbane - Wallaby lock Nathan Sharpe seems to have taken his coach's instructions for the team to show more teeth too literally as he lost a tooth in the Wallaby Tri-Nations opener against the Springboks in Brisbane on Saturday.

Sharpe was however lucky enough to have his tooth returned to him after a team of six groundstaff were sent out to find the missing tooth.

Unbelievably the ground searched the field after full-time and found the tooth allowing Sharpe to pop over to a nearby dentist to have it reinserted.

Sharpe was chasing Springbok centre Jaque Fourie in the second half and took the back of a boot to his jaw which knocked the tooth out.
The Force captain played the rest of the match with a gap in his mouth.

The Wallabies won 30-13.
