- Hooker on the bench for opening tour match in South Africa
- Cowan-Dickie was knocked unconscious in game collision
Progressive Rugby, the lobby group of former players, coaches and medics for a safer game, has condemned the selection of Luke Cowan-Dickie on the bench for the British & Irish Lions’ opening tour match in Johannesburg on Saturday, a week after the Exeter hooker was knocked out in the Premiership final.
Kyran Bracken, who is leading talks between Progressive Rugby and World Rugby, the game’s governing body, described the selection in a tweet as “the most ridiculous decision in my lifetime of rugby”.
