Left knee busted-kneecap pushed to the side when i was 13 at rugby-now 40 and it gives me trouble in the colder months.
Mtn bike stack-went off the side of a firetrail on the central coast and slammed into a tree at speed then rolled down the 40 odd meters of steep rocky hill-punctured lung, 4 broken ribs and a couple of bumps on my head that have never gone away. Bike came away uninjured.

Crushed big toe, 1 broken finger, 4 fractured fingers, broken scaphoid, bruised skull above the eye- all from playing cricket.

Currently a complete ACL rupture. Good fun.

Torn the medial and posterior cruciate ligaments in my left knee on two seperate occassions.

Plus general wear & tear / damage to most other joints over 25 yrs of playing sport. And they told me it was good to play sport.

- Landed heavy on right knee playing league. Can give a bit of pain when it's cold.
- Damaged left shoulder playing league in the U18's. Not to bad now but can give me a bit of bother now and again.
- Hurt neck playing Indoor cricket. Ran headfirst into a fielder whilst stretching out to make my ground with the bat. (Was watching ball/fielder) Ok if i dont aggravate it. When i do its murder. Lots of headaches which are hard to get rid of.
- Hyper extended left knee at indoor cricket. (was in other net and a player jumped onto the net and landed on my leg. Don't know how my leg didn't snap tbh)
- Multiple jarred/bent fingers and thumbs from wicket keeping. Aches and pains when it's cold or when i do a lot of work with my hands.
- Done my sciatic nerve playing tennis. Chiro/physio sorted most of it out. Does play up from time to time.

F##k sports.
So i took up boxing..... watch this space lol.
