'Ohh how I love this game' - Hibbard shares photo of gory facial injury

Dragons hooker Richard Hibbard has shared a gruesome picture of a facial injury he sustained while on Challenge Cup duty.

Dragons fell to a heavy 49-7 defeat at home to Clermont – who finished Pool 1 with a perfect points record in the Challenge Cup.

Hibbard had his lip badly larcerated during the game, and shared it with his followers on social media.

Hibbard tweeted: “Ohh how I love this game!! Proper face for radio.”

It was the side’s heaviest defeat in Europe this season.

“We weren’t accurate enough,” said headcoach Ceri Jones. “Our lineout wasn’t accurate enough, we went to the corner three or four times and we got nothing which you can’t do against quality opposition.

“Defensively we slipped off first up tackles too many times in that first half.

“When we had Aaron (Wainwright) off the field they got in behind us they showed they are a quality team.

“The accuracy in our play wasn’t where it needed to be and when you are playing quality opposition you are going to struggle.

“We’ve been proud of our performances recently, but that wasn’t where it needed to be.”
