Cape Town - South African prop Nicholas Schonert was on the receiving end of a nasty facial injury at Twickenham on Saturday. 

Durban-born Schonert, 24, was playing for the Worcester Warriors in their 48-18 loss to Saracens. 

Schonert was reportedly hit in the face by a stray boot, and he posted a picture to his Twitter account that was enough to put somebody off their dinner. 

But once he had been patched up, Schonert was all smiles again and he wrote about how much he had enjoyed his Twickenham experience. 

In the first minute of the match, Schonert was responsible for seeing Saracens captain and fellow-South African Alistair Hargreaves leave the field after the two clashed heads.
