Whilst Covid has (quite rightly) been grabbing the majority of the headlines this year, there has been a lot of publicity around head injuries and the long term effects.
Amongst the things I can recall (!) are the effects on players like "Nobby" Stiles the 66 World cup winners, changes to the rules around heading a football for younger players, the recent publicity on Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Chris Bryant MP, addressed Parliament regarding the need for further head injury support and praise for Headway. Now we have groups of rugby players in both the UK and NZ forming legal actions around legacy damage.
Whilst many of these started they will roll on into 2021 and beyond, so perhaps we will now see a some much deserved recognition and support of head injuries
