Really good post Leipy.

Personally, I want to see Billy V in a Saracens and England shirt for as long as possible, and I don't want him to retire either early or with a broken body with a life of pain to look forward to. This goes really for any player; for a pittance compared to our football 'stars' they put their bodies through the mincer every game and you just need to hear the contacts to know that their bodies go through huge impacts.

You would hope DORs are sensible however the players need to be sensible too, I would imagine quite a few say 'fine boss' when asked about their fitness knowing they are carrying a knock, same with loads of sportspeople. I bet most would not want to be limited to, say, 10-15 games a season either.

Unfortunately there is no easy answer and this issue will rumble on for quite a bit yet.
