NATHAN MASON suffered a bloodied nose and hideously dislocated finger in Leigh's Super League clash with Wigan on Monday.
The Centurions welcomed 1,600 fans back to Leigh Sports Village for the match with Mason showing his dedication to the home faithful.
In the first-half, Bevan French crossed the line for the visitors but was held up by the 27-year-old.
And the tackle left Mason with a dislocated finger, skewed off to one side.
The collision was so powerful, his bone even broke through the skin in chilling fashion.
Medics rushed on to treat the prop, who was taken out of the game for treatment.
Mason had earlier scored a try for Leigh as the hosts raced into a 10-0 lead.
However, Wigan fought back to a 30-16 win to maintain their 100 per cent start to the Super League season – with Leigh suffering six-straight defeats.
After the game, the Centurions wished Mason a 'speedy recovery' as squeamish fans cringed at the pictures of his injury.
The player even retweeted an image of his dislocated finger and bloodied nose by former rugby league star Leon Pryce, captioned: "RL never loses."
Fellow ex-pro Eorl Crabtree joked that the injury: "Looks like he is going right at marker."
Mason showed the blow had not dampened his spirits when replying: "Hahahahaa cheers big fella can I try wing?"
While one fan remarked upon seeing the injury: "Wow. I get a paper cut I need a lie down."
