How such an important item for the player's health can now be only a soft neoprene
foam cap secured with a chin strap?
The laws of the IRB (International Rugby Board) are strict, solid shell equipment is
prohibited.
Nevertheless, despite a system of standards, a recent study shows that helmets do
not protect rugby players from concussions, the most dangerous type of injury.
Another problem is even robust helmets worn in U.S. football do not protect against
this type of injury!
We are therefore entitled to ask, what is the minimum level of protection? How to
protect yourself and the others during the practice of contact sports? Maybe the
solution lies in very thorough regulations and above all a great fair play practiced by
players.
