THE FRONT ROW - 2021 ROUND 6: Volume 2 Issue 6

OUT NOW - it's time for the NRL to take concussion more seriously. A look at recent events and what rules need changing. We talk to Newcastle coach Adam O'Brien, and there's a special tribute to retiring North Queensland half Michael Morgan. As always, the full program for the coming weekend's action across NRL, NSWRL and QRL with a wrap-up of the weekend just gone.

This week, Jacqui Dodd from The Inner Sanctum analyses the state of the NRL's concussion rules, including an interview with Dr Alan Pearce; Paul Jobber has a look at how O'Brien and his Knights are aiming to bounce back after a big loss to the Gold Coast last week; and The Inner Sanctum's Vinny Holliday has put together a fantastic tribute to Michael Morgan as he bids professional rugby league farewell after a fantastic decade with the Cowboys.

Add in the match program, results and teamlists from around Australia and a look at the UK - and this week, the LU crossword is back - you've got a fantastic addition to your NRL match experience.
