How tough are you? How tough are our rugby players compared to this?

We have our own tough rugby players…Buck Shelford reputedly playing with a testicle torn open, he also decked out a Frog in the 1987 World Cup final. Colin Meads finished a game with a broken arm. Kevin Skinner – knocked out 2 Springbok props in 1 game…all tough guys.

But could they do the same with a broken leg.

Boston Bruins center Gregory Campbell delivered by far the most heroic performance in Wednesday night’s double-overtime thriller.

According to’s Catherine Faas, Campbell remained on the ice for almost a minute after breaking his right fibula during a penalty kill in the second period of Game 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The injury occurred when Campbell laid out to block a slap shot from Pens star Evgeni Malkin.

The video shows that Campbell was badly shaken up, remaining on the ice for a moment before getting back to his feet to help kill the Pittsburgh power play.

    Good thing he didn’t slide in facing the puck. Otherwise it would have been exploding testicle.
