How does youth rugby tackle its concussion crisis? – ENRG Sport Podcast
In the first episode of the ENRG Sport Podcast, Ryan Nixon, Bryce Donaldson and David Ronney join Jamie Braidwood to discuss safety in youth rugby.

A proposed solution would be to ban contact in youth rugby but the move is controversial, with opponents saying that it could threaten the very principles of the sport.
Is this a problem rugby will be able to tackle?
