The IRB have asked 78Seventy’s expert team of editors to work on an educational video to warn about the effects of concussion in sport. Filming will take place over the coming months in countries around the world, with some of the major names in Rugby. Welsh and British & Irish Lions centre Jamie Roberts plus a host of other top stars will give their take on why #Recognise&Remove is the message that everyone involved in rugby should know.
