Late in the game Horwill’s bent finger could be seen on live TV as he approached the medics.The BT Sport commentators cringed as it was clearly dislocated at a right angle, but also appeared to be severed, with bone visible. The medics themselves appeared a little shocked.Horwill bit down on his jersey and breathed heavily as they attempted to put it back in place and strap it up so he could continue, but sanity prevailed and he left the field.Fair play to @JHorwill playing for @Harlequins, hard as nails asking the Physio to tape this up to play on! pic.twitter.com/nB3N0FI2WA— Andy Goode (@AndyGoode10) November 20, 2016The gruesome injury has led to Horwill needing to undergo corrective surgery on Sunday. He tweeted a photo of himself afterwards, with hand and wrist specialist Mike Hayton.“Finger is looking normal again and all good!” he said, along with the photo.Former Wallabies skipper Horwill will be monitored by Harlequins medical staff before they determine when he is due to return to action.If it were up to him, he would probably play again this coming weekend.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
