Lots of criticism about the Welsh allowing George North to play on with concussion. The last four paragraphs of the story make particularly grim reading. World Rugby does have a bob or two, so if player safety is unjustifiably not their number one priority, it begs the question what on earth can possibly be more important when allocating their budgets?



Last year's RFU injury audit found that concussion was again the most common injury suffered by professional players in the Aviva Premiership. The audit for the 2013/14 season will be published this Wednesday.

World Rugby intend to employ independent matchday doctors at this year's World Cup whose job will be to alert team medics to suspected concussions in a bid to avoid a repeat of the North incident.

'In an ideal world we'd have independent doctors at every single professional rugby match but it always comes back to cost,' said one well-placed source.
