This rugby player took the phrase 'running through a brick wall' way too literally

IN AN ERA of sports science and analytics where every single measurable is, eh, measured to assess athletes, there’s very little room for heart, for bravery for guys who’ll run through a brick wall on television just to try earn a professional rugbly league contract.

Wait… what?

Down in Australia, David Andjelz is taking part in a reality show called The NRL Rookie and to prove just how tough/desperate he is, he literally ran through a brick wall.

His thought process seems a little flawed to us though:

““All these people lifting weights, what’s that got to do with the footy field?

“Yeah, it makes you better physically, but it’s what’s [in the heart] that counts.”
