This topic was very prevalent in the news yesterday, over 70 academics and doctors asking the RFU to reconsider tackling in School rugby.
In the open letter to minsters it read,’ injuries from the high-impact collision sport’, can have lifelong consequences for children
I personally and Packaging supplies as an office, feel this would be sacrilege; to ban tackling it would dent the character building quality you gain from playing rugby.
Please follow our tick list, below to keep your children safe
1) Bubble Wrap: A key element of the protection process, bubble wrap when placed correctly around the top of the head and sealed with some fragile tape.(see point 3) Can act as the perfect head guard. Be sure to make some ear holes, so your child can communicate easily on the pitch. Need to hear on the pitch
2) Foam Corner Guards: Ideal for protecting the edge of furniture, mirrors or other fragile items. However in this case an ideal replacement for shoulder pads and elbow protection. We really feel we are onto something here with this light weight and ideally shaped product.
3) Fragile Tape: Printed tape is commonly used to seal parcels or boxes that are in need of a little tender handling, love and care. On the pitch be sure to use this to hold your socks up and for various places where it is necessary to raise attention to a fragile area.
