Gummy wonder

I'm confused.  Bearing in mind that rugby players habitually wear gum-shields, I wonder how they manage to bite each other (assuming of course that the allegation were proved).

Do they take the time at the bottom of a ruck to remove the gum-shield before committing the dastardly deed?  Seems unlikely.  Or perhaps they just gnaw gummily on whatever portion of their opponent's anatomy is nearest to hand (or mouth, as it were), in which case the prospect of serious damage seems minimal.

A minor mystery ...
