Damian Hopley on concussion and rewarding players

Damian Hopley believes the fabric of rugby may need to change so safeguard professional players against the rising number of concussions taking place.

With the issue of concussion in the modern game thrown into the spotlight with the recent Six Nations incidents involving George North and Mike Brown. Now is a more important time than ever to address and understand the causes, preventions and rehabilitation methods into this serious, often overlooked injury.

Damian feels a rugby 'Think Tank’ could look at reducing the number of players taking part and the increasing the size of the pitch.
