Friday Funnies - The Cory Jane charge down with the face

Friday Funnies - The Cory Jane charge down with the face

Hurricanes fullback Cory Jane took one for the team with this attempted charge down on Kurtley Beale's clearance kick in last weekends Hurricanes vs Waratahs clash.

The clip has been circulating around the web, but we thought we'd save it for our Friday Funnies slot, for those of you who haven't seen it, and for those who want to see it again. I've watched it a few times now and either cringe or giggle every time I see it.

In all seriousness though, I don't know how Jane managed to get up so quickly from taking a propelled rugby ball in the face. I think we've all been hit in the face from a pass at least once in our careers, and believe me it can be quick a shake up.

I think in this case, it was probably adrenalin, embarrassment, or sheer shock, but the former Sevens star (who's sporting a new hair do this season ) shrugged it off with only a tiny dribble of blood from the nose and a bemused smile.

A true Falcon if ever there was one, and Phil Kearns loves that stuff.
