    A child at our local athletics club was recently taken to hospital by his mother having suffered a 'periorbital hematoma' i.e. a black eye.

    Guess what sport he was doing?

    What does the rest of the forum think?

    Banning scrums would make the situation worse as young players enter adult rugby without the skills or strength to cope with a scrum. Give it a few years and there'd be a spate of spinal injuries in adult rugby.

    That's why they have touch and mini rugby.

    Banning scrums and tackles is bonkers.

    Yep, I agree. However I also think that coaching needs to be improved if scrums are not to be banned.

    I am quite capable of handling my balls without the instruction of a health and safety officer, thank you.
