American sports reporter Alex Giaimo learned the dangers of rugby the hard way after dislocating her thumb while training with Rugby United New York.
Giaimo was doing some catching practice as part of a report with the Major League Rugby side when the ball caught her thumb awkwardly, dislocating it on the spot.
The reporter took it like a champion and walked straight over to the camera with her thumb completely out of place.
A member of the Runy staff massaged her thumb back into place as Giaimo laughed off the pain in front of the cameras. Warning, footage features strong language.
