Rugby/Other – 180 players press charges against World Rugby

A group of 180 ex-rugby players recently pressed charges against the international rugby federation, World Rugby, for a lack of protection about the neurological injuries.

In this group, we find some ex-international rugby players, such as Carl Hayman or Steve Thompson. Both suffer from dementia (Haymans is only 42 years old!), and the English pro do not remember anything of the world cup he won back in 2003.

It is not the first time there is such a procedure in sport, as the NFL, the American football league, has been convicted guilty and had to pay 800 million of dollars for compensation in a previous judgement.
