hi with waist high tackling being introduced into the union game https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/49281949
could this be adopted to our sport?
i can understand them trying to stop concussions but i would have thought that introducing skullcaps as compulsory might be a smarter move

I just can't see how this could work. Hold the ball to your chest knowing there is no way to prevent you from passing to supports.

Great way to get people playing Rugby League...
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

I wonder if part of the problem in yawnion is that they tend to lean head first into the tackle so that they can ensure they have the ball in the right position for the maul?

Yep.
Is there actually a problem with head injuries in the kids game? I don’t have figures or anything but from when I was coaching I didn’t see that many high tackles. Most of the head injuries/knocks I encountered were often from their head hitting the ground or another player whilst being tackled rather than direct contact.

The times where were there were high tackles it simply needs technique and/or attitude correcting by the kids coach.

I feel most head injuries in RU are in rucks.

Also waist high tackles puts the tackler at more risk, though the carrier is safer

Agreed, anecdotally I'd say hip-to-head injuries always seem to be the bad ones.

By all means make the game as safe as possible, but where do you draw the line? I think this would be going too far. Contact sport is what it is and if you want to play then you take the risks that come with it. Otherwise you go and play touch rugby.

Yes, I was on the receiving end of a couple of these. Never harm me any did, mind...
