    I don't want rugby heading the American Football way (I enjoy that game immensely, but I don't want rugby heading down the 'protection' route)
    The irony is, with the exception of the helmet, gridiron players are wearing moving toward less padding

    That's like asking why do pre-pubescent girls swoon over Justin Bieber.

    He's James O'Connor! Isn't that enough?

    That was not the question it was:

    So it would be interesting to know why officials let him wear them?

    Not unless that's changed in the new law book.

    But it was a reference to a very, very, very long thread about leggings from a few years ago.
