Slightly off the legal theme but to call for a blanket ban on contact/ tackles in school rugby games is downright ridiculous.
Rugby teaches you life long skills - that go hand in hand with putting your body on the line for your team mates. It teaches you discipline, respect, teamwork, sportsmanship and, most importantly, respect.
Without the contact element of the game all of that will be lost as former England rugby player Matt Perry said: "I took a risk when I started rugby at seven and I'm afraid at school level if that tackle is taken out we've lost one of the great games and one of the great cultural games."
How about these doctors focus on banning fatty foods and fizzy drinks around schools and encourage more sport and more nutritional guidance/ education within schools to "tackle" the unprecedented levels of childhood obesity we currently see.
"Parents should be aware of what sports are taught in the schools they choose to send their children to - if rugby is taught, then parents send their children to the school in the knowledge that they are likely to be asked to play rugby at some level," it added.
