    Leigh Halfpenny? More like Leigh Swarovski. It's not good seeing any player get injured, but it seems he is more delicate than most. I can't remember where I read the study, but apparently top level athletes are most likely to get injured in the warm-up/build up to a tournament than the main event itself. All the adrenaline, excitement, and personal motivation to impress leads players to push themselves just that bit too far, whether you are taking or making the hit. The pressure to play through injury is enormous, rather than letting your team down at the final hour. Here's hoping all the Welsh boys a swift recovery!
