RUGBY: In Sydney, Bret Harris reported the Int'l Rugby Board's annual Medical Commission Conference "will take place in Dublin in just over a week's time, with experts considering key areas of player welfare, including concussion strategy." Robert Cantu, a renowned neurosurgeon and sports concussion expert, "has been critical of the IRB's stance on some concussion-related issues."
