Video of the Week: Mental health in rugby

Date published: October 8 2021 - News Desk

It’s that time again for Planet Rugby’s Video of the Week, bringing you standout footage you may like. Today, we look at the issue of mental health in rugby.

There was an important discussion in South Africa recently surrounding mental health and the impact it can have in the sport, particularly in the age of Covid.

Professor Kobus du Plooy went on SuperSport to talk about the matter and we applaud them for raising awareness. After all, rugby players are human too and it has been incredibly difficult for them as well, especially the Springboks and Argentina, who have had to sacrifice more than most.
