Concussion and junior sport

Here’s a great article I came across with some commonsense suggestions re concussion and junior sport.  Both my sons play rugby union and whilst they’re too young yet to have had serious hits to the head, it’s not that far away I reckon.  The size disparity amongst the boys is starting to show now.  The Pacific Islander boys especially are big, fast and skillful – wonderful athletes.  My son just clings on like a limpet and gets dragged the length of the field.  I sometimes think his days in this sport are numbered, despite his passion for the game.
