Today on SpinTalk we  asked if you think kids should be banned from playing contact sports.

We began the discussion by speaking to Maurice Nelligan, an orthopedic surgeon at The Beacon hospital

He told us about some of the injures he's come across as a result of kids playing contact sports and explained how some injuries can affect you later in life.

We also wanted you thoughts on the subject and we heard from so many people, not just about rugby but about hurling, boxing, gaelic football and MMA.
