Rugby Player Would Rather Risk Stitches in his Penis than Use an Athletic Cup? Wow. That’s. Wow.

Every once in a while, a friend or customer fires us an article that even we can’t read without flinching.

A few weeks back it was this one.  A rugby player, Haydn Peacock, had to get 11 stitches in his penis after a particularly brutal tackle. 

We haven’t specifically marketed our athletic cups and jockstraps to rugby players—of all the sports our design team’s done including baseball, football and, of course, various martial arts, we’ve never played rugby.

Given this injury, which can’t be the first groin injury in the sport, would rugby players like to try out our gear?

According to another article, coaches would rather see their players wear a cup than wind up missing games.  But, Peacock, who plays for the French team AS Carcassonne, counters that protective gear interferes with his ability to run.

“I showed all the boys and they were pissing themselves laughing. In all of my career I’ve never heard of anyone having anything like that happen – 11 stitches in the dick. It was the game before we played Lezignan in the Cup.
I remember I had to strap it all up for the next game. I just had to go around it. The coach wanted me to go out and buy a cup but I’m not going to play with a cup, I’m not going to be able to run. I just had to heavily strap it. It’s all good (now). I got the stitches out and it’s all sweet. No dramas.”

Of course, we disagree with anyone who says groin protection gets in the way.  Maybe back in the days of stretched out cotton jocks and thin plastic cups, but our gear is so far beyond that we’re sure that it would hold up to any sport, no matter how rough, even rugby.
