A group of 70 doctors and health experts have written to the government urging them to ban tackling in school-level rugby. The RFU is currently driving to increase youth participation in rugby, but some experts are worried about the high-impact nature of the game, and the long-term effects it could have on the health of children.The majority of all injuries occur during contact or collision, such as the tackle and the scrum, the letter said. These injuries, which include fractures, ligamentous tears, dislocated shoulders, spinal injuries and head injuries, can have short-term, life-long, and life-ending consequences for children. Sky Sports News HQ reporter Geraint Hughes explains how teachers might change the way rugby is played at their schools. A link has been found between repeat concussions and cognitive impairment and an association with depression, memory loss and diminished verbal abilities, as well as longer term problems.The Rugby Football Union said that high quality coaching, officiating, medical support and appropriate player behaviour would help to reduce the risk of injury.Should tackling be banned from school rugby?

Looking to win his second Green Jacket in as many years, Spieth finished bogey-free, carding six birdies to secure a clubhouse lead.However, the 22-year-old American insists that he will need to improve his iron play if he is to stay ahead of the chasing pack in the next three days. Watch how Jordan Spieth finished top of the leader board after scoring six under on day one of the Masters. Its one of the better rounds Ive ever shot, Spieth told Sky Sports. I didnt feel like I had good control on my iron swings today but I put a couple of good ones in on 13 and 18 and then the ones that were missed, were missed in places where I could make par at worst.The short game was there today and the putter was there today. I made a lot of putts considering the windy conditions, its something we tend to do on this golf course so its nice when they do go in.In order to stay bogey-free - which isnt necessarily tthe goal, the goal is to try and shoot under par each day - its going to take a little bit more in the ball striking and the patience that we had today.dddddddddddd Jordan Spieth was bogey-free in his first round After sinking a six-footer for his first gain on the third, Spieth made two more before the turn and he was three-under on the back nine too with further birdies at 10, 13 and 18.Its just a place where I feel comfortable, he added. I feel like you need imagination with the rich history here, it just excites you when you tee off and we were able to really settle down quicker than I think we have in either of the last two years.While Spieth looked in fine fettle in his first round, Rickie Fowler struggled throughout to finish eight-over. Rickie Fowler struggled as he shot +8 in his first round Golfs not an easy game, he said, after his second worst ever round at a major.Golfs tough, it is a fine line, especially at this place. I mean, I go play a decent back nine and Im three-under par.It can go either way and it can definitely go the other way, the high number way, a lot easier than it can the low. They can add up quick.
