I strongly believe reducing the number of subs in a game will massively reduce the injuries. Like football have as many on the bench as you want but only 3 allowed. There is no way the huge modern players can play 80 min also having several 18 stone subs come on fresh to batter tiring players will obviously cause injury. This way players will have to reduce their weight to play longer in the game

More banter or at the worst stereotyping I think.

Reports surfacing in France suggesting that 56 time capped Springbok Pat Lambie is on the verge on accounting his retirement due to his ongoing struggle with concussion. The French media are reporting that the 28 year old has expressed his concerns to his club Racing 92.

Yes its official Lambie has retired from all forms of rugby at 28. A real shame for a top player who harboured hopes of playing in Japan. Sensibly he has looked after his long term health and sounded pretty relieved to be making the announcement. Good luck to him.

Yes a little ironic that as they were big mates apparently. Lambie's latest knock was in April against Munster I believe - not Stander again!!!!

It’s not just the headaches but the nausea and sickness that can linger after these concussions.

I also wonder on some level where a player has suffered a few concussions, is getting on has a young family etc - fear of returning could have a subconscious effect on the body. Like someone suffering a car crash then getting back in the car again. Pivac alluded to this with Patch - his game had been affected.

I remember reading this article some years ago and it changed how I thought about concussion recovery

Utterly awful

I don’t want to be a doom monger but the fact that HP had concussion even though he didn’t get hit on the head speaks volumes after reading that.

There’s a sizable amount of learning possible on the wide ranging impacts of concussions.

Headaches or nausea are just a couple.

Temporary loss of neurone skills, concentration challenges, moodiness, memory linkage challenges to events and so on...time is a healer, but isn’t always the healer.

To be fair, sounds like me after having had more than 6 pints, these days.

The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has prematurely ended the trial of a new tackle height law after an increase in the number of concussions.

Matches in the Championship Cup were subject to new rules with players not allowed to tackle above the armpit.

But instances of concussion rose among players tackling opponents who were bent at the waist carrying the ball.

The line of the shoulders will again be the permitted tackle height when the knockout stages begin next month.

Any news when Blade will be back? His increasing absence is a worry.
