    Exclamation Re: 6 Nations launch event - questions for coaches/captains

    The French Union’s proposed changes to the tackle law are surely worth questioning. I think we need to take player’s safety seriously, yet I suspect few National coaches will be drawn on the subject.

    Then there’s the old chestnut of the HIA
    Dr Barry O’Driscoll, the former Ireland international who retired from World Rugby’s medical board in 2014 due to his dissatisfaction with its approach to concussion.
    Would you suggest another approach?
    BOD: At the moment we have no definitive HIA which rules out concussion. If you are concerned enough to perform a HIA, the player should stay off and enter the RTP protocol. Again, this will have to be assessed at frequent intervals to improve the safe approach.
    He is well placed to have an opinion about the current HIA approach. What do coaches and players feel about the idea that the HIA is entirely flawed.
    BOD: The Head Injury Assessment is totally flawed. It is designed for players who have no signs, no symptoms or no suspicion of concussion. Who are these players? The reason they go off for this test is by definition that there must be a suspicion. If there is a sign, symptom or suspicion, the regulation is that the player does not have a HIA. He stays off and goes through the graded return to play (RTP) procedure.

In return, it is the responsibility of coaches, captains and players to respect the authority of the match officials.
    The player charter should be recited morning and afternoon before each and every training session. Until such time as they know it by heart. The referee’s job has been made impossible, because professional/ elite players are there on a pay to win basis. This undermines the Laws of the game completely. Instead of having countless infringements at every break down in play, these professionals sure aim for zero infringements. So just because the referee is not enforcing this or that particular point of law, is no bloody reason for them not to respect all the Laws. Clubs and National sides depend financially on winning. Fairness, and indeed player safety have taken a back seat to financial considerations.
    I'll be sure to ask them all to start reciting the player charter accordingly! ;-)

    KML in reality you are going to a publicity event, not Question Time , and they won't want to talk about any of these things .

    Ask them about Farrell's thumb, and whether Jack Nowell can play flanker

    We all know that CR, that is why these events are a load of pointless sycophantic crap.

    @L'irlandais - The referees wont be there. It's just the coaches and captains of the 6Ns competitions
    Should a reckless jump for a high ball give you rights (and potentially an opposition RC) over a player standing his ground on the ground?

    I'd be interested whether they've changed their approach to tackling, following the decisions on Owen Farrell's tackle technique in the autumn internationals.

    If I thought I would get an answer I would ask why they permit props to bind incorrectly, push early, bore in and then penalise their opponent for collapsing.

    I am not convinced that «*obsequious*» is the right word to describe Eddie.(I am definitely open to suggestions for a better word). Time was when I enjoyed the Six Nations, but these stupid Mind games do spoil it for me.

    Eddie Jones loves to stir the pot, but does that do justice to what the RFU represents?

    That seems like an unobjectionable interview to me.
    Dull, if anything , by Eddie's standards
