Yes, you read that headline correctly. No, this is sadly not a joke.
Australian rugby player Todd Carney has had a pretty awful weekend after a photo surfaced showing him peeing into his own mouth at a local pub, and strangely enough, the fact that he drank his own urine isn't even the bad part.
The controversial star ended up having his contract with his team the Cronulla Sharks terminated, and to top it all off he may have ended up getting BANNED from the National Rugby League for life!!
The NRL released a statement, saying:
Prince Harry is one sexy hunk of royalty!
Not only is he all sorts of fit and handsome (and regal)… he's also a great guy who's cool with kids!
The prince took time out of his busy schedule helping to rule a monarchy, dealing with lecherous lords and feudal society, to play some rugby and soccer with a bunch of children!
Who knew rugby could be such a tear-jerker???
Back in 1995, South Africa was the host nation for the Rugby World Cup, but Nelson Mandela knew it was much more than a sporting event. Instead, he saw it as an opportunity to bring together a nation that was still recovering from an apartheid.
His theory proved to be correct and South Africa was stronger than ever after the Springboks beat New Zealand in the finals and brought home their first ever World Cup victory.
Well the rugby team decided to pay tribute to their fallen leader who recognized that a simple game can be so much more than 30 men on a field, and can actually unite an entire country.
Ch-ch-check out the heartwarming tribute …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Who knew the royal family was full of athletes??!
Not to be outdone by his brother, Prince Harry made his way to Twickenham to promote the Rugby Football Union's All Schools programme, which looks to bring rugby to 750 schools as England prepares to host the World Cup in 2015!
The royal rebel is known to dabble in sports from time to time, so he had no problem keeping up with the kiddies as he ran them through drills and showed off some of his own skills!
However, he wasn't alone as England's World Cup winner Jason Robinson was also on hand, and he did NOT go easy on the prince!!
Harry definitely looked winded after his long day on the field as he made his way home drenched in sweat!
But the important thing is that he had some fun! Oh, and he also didn't get hurt! That's pretty important too!
Ch-ch-check out more photos of Harry showing off his rugby skills (below)!

This is just scary!
Two rugby teams from the country of Georgia were playing this week when a huge brawl broke out.
It seems like every player on the field got involved, and even some on the sidelines, once the fight went too far.
Not even the refs could keep it from escalating!
Ch-ch-check it out (above), and see how it finally ended.

18-year-old rugby player Chris Mapletoft died recently after he took a diet pill that turned out to be poisonous.
The teenager out of Twickenham, London purchased 2,4-dinitrophenol (also known as DNP) online in hopes to shed a few pounds, but the chemical turned out to be too toxic for human consumption. The same chemical is known to be used in pesticides.
Chris's father David Mapletoft was with him when he said he began feeling nauseous and started showing fever-like symptoms. He called an ambulance once Chris began having difficulty breathing, but by the time it arrived he had already died.
David and his wife Lesley Mapletoft had no idea their son was taking the pill, and they are outraged that something so dangerous was so easily available online:
These guys sure know how to celebrate a victory!!
The Chiefs recently defended their title as the New Zealand kings of rugby after they defeated the Brumbies in the Super Rugby finals!
But instead of going with the champagne showers we're used to seeing, they decided to celebrate with a little Haka dance!!
For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Haka is a traditional dance done by the Maori tribes in New Zealand before they went into battle! Rugby teams started to do it before matches to intimidate their opponents, and it quickly became one of the coolest rituals in all of sports!
Don't believe us? Check out the awesomeness for yourself (above)!
