I played in the sixties when stiff arms were very common.About 7 years ago I suffered a stroke .Have wondered ever since if the stroke was in any way connected with my playing days .12 years of senior RLJust have to say as one who suffered a lot of concussion, and got so many head highs I lost count.
I actually have a press photo from way back at Carlaw Park where it looks like I am being decapitated.
My concussion came from making tackles. Tackling a 100 kg player running full speed at you causes a lot of concussion. I felt every one.
I never felt concussed by ahead high tackle.
Has anybody seen any comment along those lines?
