What has Greg said about his rugby injuries?

He revealed in his entrance interview that he's sustained a number of injuries while playing rugby, saying: "I broke my face a couple of months ago through Rugby so I had a broken nose and a cracked forehead! Before that happened I would say I was an 8… but now I’d dock myself down to a 7 with the broken face. The lads always say I give the girls a cheeky smile so that’s probably my best feature."
