broady, no ones saying stop tackling or scrummaging, what I'm saying is stop it for the younger kids.
I was taught the craft of rugby not at school (although our gym teacher played on the wing for Wigan) but on the streets with older lads playing tick and pass, and I'm sure lots who read this thread can relate to this.
When some young kid starts to play rugby they don't think "I'm going to be rich" they play the game because they like it, and maybe one day play for a team.
Rugby league rules change every year in one form or another, some for the better and some not, but at least players abide by those rules, and if it stops just one kid having to to endure what I have then the sport is better for it in my opinion.
P.S. Don't be giving us that league against union crud, they are all rugby players just playing by different rules.
