Talking about injuries just now, with Damien Hopley. Talked about injury rate of players training with England w- worse than club injury rate from training and other national squads. He talked sense - England coaches beasting the players because they only get them for a short time - "They are professionals and should only need fine tuning"!

...not something you would expect from a training session involving Lewis! But surely he right.

He has changed a bit, though, now. He said he used to laugh at people with concussion but now realises that attitude was wrong.It was a good prog. to listen to

This is what the future should look like. [thelab.bleacherreport.com]

Also later in 2016, the Ivy League banned full contact in practice for the season.
