Professor Allyson Pollock wants rugby banned in schools after seeing her son suffer a broken cheek bone during a match. She has since banned both her sons from playing the sport and now wants to take away the right of your children to play as well.
In fairness to Professor Pollock the mounting concern surrounding concussions in rugby is an issue that needs addressing, however to simply claim that a sport is dangerous and stop your kids from playing it is frankly moronic.
She points out that injuries can range from cuts and bruises through to broken bones, and most severely of all head and spinal injuries. It’s hard to argue with this, however there is also a chance that your child may end up with such injuries climbing in trees, playing football, or even simply going out in the car, should we ban all of these activities as well?
