The vast majority of concussions are a result of bad timing or bad positioning .by a tackler.
Shoulder charges another possible concussion culprit have been banned and are heavily penalised.Punching is banned, now it's slap and tickle.
Abuse of the concussion rule is heavily penalised financially.
High tackles are either penalised on the spot or referred to the judiciary.
The author of the article with due respect has spent little time on ten overall situation and just touched the peripherals.
The system is not perfect but is being acted upon.
I watched the highlights half hour ago GWSingapore.Some good well constructed tries, but some woeful defence in others.
The crowd stayed behind ,but it was a very small crowd to be fair.
I'd prefer to see games like the Broncos v Canberra,and the Cowboys v Titans.Great hard earned tries with committed defence and close scores .And indeed the Brumbies of old sides were worth watching.
Scrums sorry ,one of the reasons I found ru not my cup of tea ,not knowing what the penalty was for,and the scrum just about exclusively going with the feed.
.Please no going back to pre limited tackle rules.where bash and barge was a truly in vogue.Teams in possession held on to the ball like a limpet mine and had stars to do further damage.circa Dragons.Now we get on of the most unpredictable comps on this planet.
Crowds cheering teams in the NRL at half and full time, sometimes both teams ,happens.Without the need for .geometrically perfect scrums.
The guy reminds me of Wayne Pearce in some ways, works damn hard for the full 80m,not a game breaker, but the sort of bloke with leadership qualities, with the follow me approach.
A credit to himself and his club.Should be more of them.
