I have read suggestions that this will discourage parents from taking lads to Sunday morning mini-rugby, that players will retire, that sponsorships will not be renewed. Sorry, I can't see it. The game clearly needs to clean house and perhaps we will gain the benefit of rugby ceasing to be holier than thou, of recognising that there are problems and dealing with them openly rather than sweeping them under the carpet.
