Tokyo – Japan
International Rugby Board (IRB) have today announced that players will have to use their mind to tackle the opposition for the coming season.
In a bid to reduce concussion in the games, the players will be connected up to a lighting systems that will switch on when a tackle is made in the mind of the player. The opposition will then fall over in the tackle and a ruck is formed.
Talking about it to reporters, the chair of the IRB Wallis Ellis said
“Safety of the player is paramount. We tried restricting the tackle area. It didn’t work. So now we are going to use the most powerful muscle. The Brain!”
This has caused outrage among the fans and lower level players who, unfortunately after some solid years of drinking excessively before during and after games, have limited brain functions.
