Is the treatment of injuries in rugby a ticking time bomb?
Rory Lamont has come out and said that he believes the treatment of injuries in Scotland, and specifically players being asked to play through injury is a "ticking time bomb" for the health of professionals. He also draws particular attention the way players with concussion are allowed to return too soon, something we all saw on the British & Irish Lions Tour when Christian Lealiifano returned to action seven days after being sparked out cold.
What is your view on this? Are players being pressured into playing when they shouldn't be? I'd also be interested to hear about whether this happens at the lower levels of the game. Share your thoughts and experiences in the comments.
