World Rugby:

With just a few months until the Rugby Union World Cup, we look at how the sport is making an impact in countries that don’t normally play rugby. The Rugby World Cup kicks off on FRIDAY 18TH SEPTEMBER 2015 and is hosted by The English Rugby Union. The Pools and divisions are set and are available here.

Paralympic Dream:

We meet Julie Pain, a woman who suffers from a degenerative condition that is likely to lead to locked-in syndrome but who has now set her sights on competing in dressage at the Rio Paralympics.

Para-Equestrian Dressage Event Rules for 2015, Para-Equestrian Dressage World Ranking Rules, 2015, and the Classification Manual for Para-Equestrian Dressage Competition have been updated to be effective 1 January 2015. see here

Premier League Depression:

We look at whether enough is being done to help footballers who are suffering from depression. We hear from a former player who tried to commit suicide and the former premier league star who is trying to make a difference to those who are suffering, often in silence.
