Podcast: How does youth rugby tackle its concussion crisis?

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?
