MP Gareth Hughes will have plastic surgery to repair a badly broken nose, busted while playing for the Parliamentary Rugby XV.

Hughes, the only Green Party MP in the side, suffered the injury on Monday in a game against a Diplomatic Corps XV in Wellington. The match was a warm-up for the Parliamentary World Cup, starting next Sunday.

The broken nose forced him out of yesterday's game against a West Coast invitational team in Greymouth – won by the Coasters 12-0.

"I got the ball out of a ruck and started charging it up," Hughes said. "But then I got knocked with some guy's forearm.

"I went down and an awesome amount of blood came out. I went off to hospital and they said, `Wow, that [nose] is really bent'."

The injury happened 15 minutes into the match.

"I had the ball, I was running and the next thing I was on the ground," Hughes recalled.

"Maybe it was because I am so short. He was trying to tackle me – but he got my head instead."

Hughes will return to Wellington next week for surgery to straighten his nose.

"I'm out of the World Cup unfortunately," he said.

"But I will offer to be their water boy.

Hughes suffered cracked ribs in his debut for the Parli. mentary World Cup side at Murupara in July.
