News from across the great divide where Castleford Tigers coach Terry Matterson has recently provided incontrovertible proof that Australian Rugby League types are seriously hard bastards.

Matterson, it seems, contrived to have a finger ripped off in a freak accident at a training camp in the south of France, catching his wedding ring in a steel fence while jumping over it to retrieve a ball...And it wasn't until after he had retrieved the ball that he realised what had happened.

"One minute I was climbing a fence looking for a ball, then the next I was looking for my finger, " Matterson is reported to have commented afterwards, adding in a somewhat understated fashion:

"It's not ideal."
