Sonny Bill Williams is the latest player to hit out at the RFU after they agreed to lower the height of the tackle in community rugby.

On Thursday it was announced that the legal tackle height in England would be lowered to the waistline.

The decision was taken as a result of a study from the University of Glasgow that found that ex-rugby players had more of a risk of neurodegenerative and motor neurone diseases.

The former New Zealand rugby star now turned heavyweight boxer wasn’t the only player to voice his opposition on Twitter.
