It’s our Rugby World Cup show on #TheScienceInside!

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

We find out about concussions in rugby and whether it could lead to ‪‎ALS‬ and Motor Neuron Disease with Jon Patricios from Concussion SA and Dr Franclo Henning from Stellenbosch University.

Later in the show we’ll speak to Dr Sharief Hendricks from ESSM UCT about why some players get hurt in tackles while others don’t.

Of course there’s also our Sensational Science Quiz and your weekly science news update.

Keep in touch with us on
The Science Inside 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.
