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 recent study published by professors at Newcastle University presents figures which show that rugby has the highest concussion rate of any sport. 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?
