LISTEN as the @rugby365com team chats to renowned medical practitioner and concussion expert @jonpatricios about one of the biggest quagmires in the game.

Doctor Patricios is a co-founder and current Director of Sports Concussion South Africa and the Schools Sports Concussion Programme. He enlightens us about the extent of concussion in the game – following the retirement of high-profile players like @PatLambie @PeterGrant_ and the growing number of concussion-related incidents.

He explains what programmes are in place from grassroots to first-class and international level.

@King365ed and @LoffieEloff also welcome former @WelshRugbyUnion international @HalLuscombe, who chats about the opening round of the @SixNationsRugby and what awaits us in Round Two.
