i was playing rugby on saturday and i tackled this guy and i was at the bottom of the ruck on my side. and the guy who i tackled was on top of me and he weighted about 220lb and heaps of other guys piled on to try and protect the ball.

this was crushing my sternum and i could feel it pushing my shoulders together and when i got up i had a great pain in my sternum. i kept playing cause there was only like 5 mins to half time but the pain didnt go away.

3 days later when i push my sternum it hurts, could i of cracked it? i am going to see a doctor today to see what he says, but was wondering if any of you guys and gals have had a problem similar to this and what did u do to recover?
