Crichton Has Finger Amputated


In easily one of the most bizzare headlines of 2017, Roosters bound, Angus Crichton has had a partial amputation of his middle finger on his left hand.

According to reports, the South Sydney forward had sustained serious damage to the finger while playing in the under 20's competition nearly 3 years ago, he ruptured the ligaments but decided he would be fine to see the season out.

Since the injury, Crichton has undergone reconstructive surgery numerous times, but the finger has continually been a burden.

Crichton decided to take the extreme measure after being told, that another surgery would see him out of action for just shy of 3 months, whereas an amputation would only side-line him for 2 weeks.

Crichton is not the first player to lose a body part to the game, Paul Wood, a former Warrington forward, lost his testicle to a stray knee one minute into the second half of the Grand Final.

Wood played on, making tackles, running the ball, it was only after the game that Wood revealed the extent of the injury, on twitter he posted that he was going to the hospital, to have the ruptured testicle removed.
