Rugby league star Sia Soliola has shared a gruesome X-ray image of a skull fracture he sustained following a clash of heads with an opponent.
The Canberra Raiders’ man was rushed to hospital after a clash of heads with prop Blake Lawrie.
And scans confirmed that Soliola had suffered a facial fracture during the win over St George Illawarra Dragons.
Soliola later updated fans on his health as he shared a snap of the X-ray.
However, he managed to see the funny side of things as he joked in his post alongside the image: “At least my teeth are intact.”
Canberra team-mate Nick Cotric commented: “Speedy recovery.”
