Schools urged to ban tackling in rugby

More than 70 doctors and academics are calling for a ban on tackling in rugby matches played in UK and Irish schools.

In an open letter to politicians, they say injuries from this "high-impact collision sport" can have lifelong health effects for children.

They argue that the majority of injuries in youth rugby are down to tackles and they want schools to move to touch and non-contact rugby.

Supporters say rugby builds character and other forms are less challenging.
