Charity highlights the dangers of concussion in sport

.

Football, Rugby and Cricket have all seen some high profile players affected by concussion.

As a result professional sports have introduced special protocols to protect players, but, with an incident of concussion every 21 games in amateur rugby, there are calls for a similar approach at the grassroots level as well.
