Well for a start the scrum is always going to be an area with the potential of serious injuries, so that could be done away with or just turned into a leaning contest that just ties in 8 players from each side. Rucks are another high injury area so eliminate them to something more akin to league.

How far do you want to take it? Make the game touch and eliminate all tackling if you then said no running only walking, with those two simple changes you could virtually eliminate all injuries but not sure what you would be left with. Mind you touch is played up and down the country and walking is an Olympic event so who knows?

If player welfare is the real aim then reducing the number of games they play is the real answer, but we all know money is more important than player welfare don't we?
