Saracens star proves he really is a certified badass
Saracens loose forward Jackson Wray sent a message out to his followers on Twitter today addressing the injury he picked up against Northampton Saints at the weekend. Nothing out of the ordinary, just the normal messages that players share after an injury.
The 31-year-old veteran wrote on Twitter: “Thanks for all the messages guys, injuries are unfortunately part of the game we love. Look forward to being back on the field with the boys!”
This does not seem that strange or unusual until learning that the injury Wray picked up was actually a fractured skull. Suddenly, a message like this makes him look like the ultimate badass. This is not just a normal rugby injury that the back row is talking about, it is a severe injury that he just casually seems to be brushing off.
Thanks for all the messages guys, injuries are unfortunately part of the game we love. Look forward to being back on the field with the boys!
