    I have to be honest and dismayed at the way this country is turning our kids into namby pambies when it comes to learning and playing sport. Some schools have already Banned heading the ball in football, banned tackling in rugby and bowling underhand in cricket.....When i was a lad i loved playing rugby by the same rules as grown ups and yes i got hurt sometimes but that was all part of the game....This to me will ruin children's abilities of growing up and their attitude towards playing sport........PC gone mad....just my opinion...

    I loved cricket season. Bowling fast as I could at some fat fecker who had smashed me into the mud all season playing chase the egg.

    Rugby , rugby , fecking rugby. Next to no chance of playing football in the school I went to.

    Embarrassing - spot the fat kids - front row , big but slightly less fat the rest of the forwards. Everyone else who were also good at football the backs. Stupid sport.

    It will be interesting to see the results of the links between heading a football and dementia.
