The implications from LK was that the roles this coming season would be very different from last.

Was it not more of a clear statement? Roles and tactics different this time. Takes a big man to admit he got the tactics all wrong last season.

It was clear enough, but he did say there were (at the time) a lot of details still to be sorted out.

It's good to see rugby involved in this discussion about how to address concussion. It has been a long time coming. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/40675605
Personally, I can't see much hope for significant improvement in what is a full contact sport. If speed, strength, muscle bulk, aggression and rewards are allowed to continue rising, big, destructive collisions will be inevitable.

Does anybody get esports? Clearly the BBC thinks it's the way forward.

I believe there's a rugby video game. Who in their right mind...? For all the failings of UR, Friday nights at Ravers are still a country mile ahead of this 'sport'.

So who is the highest paid chief exec in British national sports bodies? I'd have guessed the chief exec of the Football Association. Turns out it is Ian Ritchie, chief exec of the RFU, on £700,000 last year.

Anybody any idea how much the IRFU chief exec is on?
