Rugby very bad for your health

As I watched the physical and bruising encounter between Leinster and Munster on Saturday evening I saw two very tired and heavily bandaged teams shipping a lot of injuries.

Very few of the internationals playing did not have a serious injury in the past year or two.

And a lot of these players still face a gruelling international series down under against Australia and New Zealand, arguably two of the hardest teams in the world.
