Grenoble scrum-half James Hart joked that he looked ‘like a hill-billy’ after losing his two of his teeth at the weekend.

GRENOBLE’S IRISH SCRUM-HALF James Hart had to thank after we helped him find one of the two teeth he lost in a tackle at the weekend.

Hart, who has been a revelation at 9 for the French side this season, had two teeth knocked out when attempting to tackle Perpignan centre David Marty on Saturday. Grenoble won 25-19 but a dazed Hart sat out the final 30 minutes after shipping this blow:



Hart commented, “His head went straight into my face. I tried to get up straight away but was more than a bit groggy.” He added, “I’ve lost a front tooth and part of another. I look like a hill-billy at the moment.”

The Dubliner returned to Grenoble’s Stade Lesdiguières on Monday morning and had an unexpected surprise. Hart said, “I was in the changing room with the physio and some of the lads were laughing and joking about my teeth.

“I saw the tackle on TheScore and went out to the pitch to see if I could find it from where it happened in the clip. I did but it was in bits.”

Hart paid an afternoon visit to the dentist and, after round one of treatment, now has a lovely capping where his old teeth used to be.

Glad we could help James.
