Last summer I started playing rugby with Snake River Rugby in Boise, ID, USA. I practiced for about 3 months then got the opportunity to go to a tournament outa state. In my first match I tackled someone and was caught under their body. I was pushed off the ball and my ankle folded in half. It tore all the tendons and cost me around 5,000 after ins. Now I am afraid to start playing again. Every time I watch a match I just picture legs breaking. How do I over come this? Is there a way to tackle that will save me next time? And is there a way to be tackled that will save me?
