The West Coast Eagles lost a thrilling encounter with Collingwood in today’s AFL clash, but young Eagles defender Elliot Yeo will be feeling the loss more than any of his teammates.
Yeo, 20, copped a bruising bump from Magpie Jarrod Witts which snapped a couple of his teeth off. His two front teeth.
Here, watch. One tooth drops down in front of Yeo, the other flies up to the top of the screen:
He came back on and played a decent second half, but the Eagles lost the game 17.7 (109) to 15.11 (101).
He also came back with a pretty decent tweet, all things considering.
All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth…
