[LISTEN] The Science Inside’s World Cup Rugby special

Something to psyche you up before Saturday’s big game: have a listen to The Science Inside’s Rugby World Cup show. There are among others interviews about doping at high school level, and the influence of concussions.

We hear about high school rugby players doping with Shona Hendricks from the High Performance Centre.

Can concussions in rugby lead to ‪‎ALS and Motor Neuron Disease? The team discusses this with Jon Patricios from Concussion SA and Dr Franclo Henning from Stellenbosch University.

Dr Sharief Hendricks from ESSM UCT chats about why some players get hurt in tackles while others don’t.

The Science Inside is broadcast on Vowfm 88.1 – Mondays 6-7pm – Stream on

The Science Inside team is Elna Schütz, DJ Keyez and Lutfiyah Suliman, with help from Ndweni.
