Player finds tooth stuck in forehead
Rugby league prop Ben Czislowski ran around for 15 weeks without knowing an opponent's tooth was buried in his forehead.
Ben Czislowski had a clash of heads with Tweed Heads forward Matt Austin during a Queensland Cup game on April 1.
He had the wound stitched up but was wondering why he felt lethargic, had an eye infection and had shooting pains in his head ever since.
Czislowski, a former Broncos and Bulldogs player in the NRL, visited his GP last week and all was revealed.
"I can laugh about it now but the doctor told me it could have been serious with teeth carrying germs," Czislowski, 24, told AAP.
It's a bizarre story, so Czislowski has taken measures to ensure he is believed. "I've got the tooth at home, sitting on the bedside table," he said.
"If he (Austin) wants it back he can have it. I'm keeping it at the moment as proof that it actually happened.
"It's a story I can tell for the rest of my life. It will get a bit more exaggerated over the years, but it's a good laugh."
