Doctors Say No to Tackling in Rugby – level 2

17-04-2018 15:00

Rugby is a competitive and rough sport that people play in England, but doctors worry about the effects of tackling on the children who play rugby in school.

Some parents say that the game is too violent, while others say that it would be strange not to have tackling in the game.

A rugby injury paralysed one player, and even he said that tackling should be part of the game. He said that people choose to play the sport because they want the contact, and that the difficulty of rugby gave him the willpower to overcome his paralysis.

Difficult words: tackle (when a player runs into another player to knock him over), paralyse (to be unable to move part of your body).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
