WEBCHAT; Sam Warburton's retirement.

Rugby seems more interested in the financial aspects, rather than player welfare. For years the WRU has added an extra game to the Autumn internationals. Our players play club rugby, European rugby, Six Nations, Lions tours ... when are they supposed to rest their bodies? Kraken There will be more international friendlies to supplement the regions - the attendances are far too low - but the WRU refuses to widen the game. It`s a continual downward spiral and the players will ultimately pay the price. ShireHorse World Rugby should not have knee-jerk reactions to one highprofile player retiring early. AWJ (Alun Wyn Jones) keeps going and he takes a mighty battering for 80 minutes whenever he plays.

cubster24 Sam Warburton, due to his recent announcement, is a high-profile player who is being used as an example to show how physical the game is now.
