more or less the same game :thumbsup: thanks loads :)
:( nobody else want to help me???
!bump bump! !bump!
I'm helping, but also I play rugby union I've had a broken nose from a high tackle (illegal tackle)

btw I've done a bit of law on assault etc so sort of know the differences between leaving no mark, breaking the skin, breaking a bone they arrest you for the most severe case but the charge will be lowered in court.
