Andrew Symonds put his World Cup hopes in tatters when he tore his bicep off the bone early in 2007 against England.
Not that he listened to physio Alex Kountouris at any point through his injury and recovery.
Mike Hussey and Brad Haddin – teammates and squad members at the time – were sharing their best stories of Roy on Willow Talk.
They both had hilarious memories of Roy tearing his bicep.
Because he cracked the shits with Kountouris multiple times, both when Kountouris wanted Roy to retire hurt and when he wanted Roy not to drink during his recovery.
“He goes ‘this is sport! THIS IS ENGLAND!'”
