Passing-By Rugby League Personal Trainer Casually Pops Player's Dislocated Shoulder Back Into Place

It's hard to know how many shoulders this gentleman has relocated in his day, but good goddamn is that impressively quick.

Not all sports are created equal in badassery. You can argue to the death about which leagues are better, more fun, require more skill—but when it comes to hardcore-edness (scientific term), there's a pretty finite line. Hurling is up there, sure. Obviously American football. But when a Rugby League personal trainer rolls up to a player this casually and pops in his dislocated shoulder, you know you've got yourself a badass sport.

During Friday night's (Australia time) game between the Broncos and the Storm in Australia's National Rugby League, Broncos hooker Kodi Nikorima found himself getting hit hard past the try line. His fall loosened his shoulder joint. There happened to be a personal trainer walking by—looking like he was taking a Sunday stroll—who came over and very insanely suavely popped Nokorima's shoulder back into place. It's hard to know how many shoulders this gentleman has relocated in his day, but good goddamn was that impressively quick.
