Joshua Cowie's comment, February 7, 2015 6:15 PM
I watch rugby league and love the game, and I agree that it is a brutal game. "A hard game played by hard men." However the fact that this boy died playing the game is surely a reason to look at and ensure the safety of the men playing it. I also agree that the whole attitude about the hardness of the game may need to be altered so that we do everything in our power to ensure that something like this doesn't happen again.,
