Staff find Sharpe's tooth

2010-07-26 10:30

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.

    The same GAP was in the Springboks defense line. At least the ground staff could find the "gap" PDV is going to struggle to find a solution for his "gap"

    Jaque pulled it from his boot after the match and that is how they found it.

    If they did not find the tooth I suppose Fourie would have been cited for that as well!!.

    How nice it would have been if Jaque went over and handed the tooth to him himself. (he he he)

    So they didn’t find any brains for the sheep shaggers out there?

    @Tokkie. Just a newsflash for you: the Great Wall of China can not be seen from space. But on the gap in the Bok defence, I must agree with you.
