If rugby seriously wanted to reduce this risk (although it's doubtful they do) I wonder if they could make it like American Football?You only have to look at what happens close to the try line to realise you can’t totally remove head contact from the game.
Every pick and drive at the try line has attacking players with their heads lower than their hips and defensive players hitting them with whatever part of their body that will stop them.
Be a huge change I know ... but you obviously don't have ground the ball in NFL for a touchdown (misnamed though it is).
Yep.Just glad Vest is ok. Watching it last night the commentators mention it was good to see him on his feet making his own way off the field. How wrong that could have gone!
An unstable C7 fracture could have seen him a paraplegic.
