    Duty of care almost demands that the players will end up wearing helmets. I can see it happening in my lifetime for sure.

    A careless tackle a week at least.

    Maybe crancky frankie should put the same shoulder charge on des and then see what Des thinks.

    Is he referring to helmets like the NFL? because if he stopped for a second and read a scientific or NFL report regarding helmets and injuries he'd retract that douchebaggery spew of a comment.

    Full body armour seems the way to go, or perhaps they can all play in individual plastic bubbles?

    However Des chooses to use his tongue is completely up to him and possibly Todd Greenberg.

    In all serious not true he actually went over to make sure he was ok after he had scored the try.

    Was the hit intentional? NO
    Does that sort of hit have the potiental to severely brain damage or even kill? YES

    That's why frank was suspended.

    10 years ago it would of got him 3 dally m points but times have changed.

    Rugby League players already have helmets (voluntary) in head gear (remember Beaver anyone?).

    That's good enough.

    Also, shoulder charges to the dome should be outlawed. If it's accepted, attacking players should be able to brace for the shot with an arm, meaning a tackler may cop a random elbow.

    You want to hit like that, take the risk.
