Dylan Hartley's Instagram Takes Aim At 'So-Called Experts' Due To Concussion Debate

Dylan Hartley's Instagram Takes Aim At 'So-Called Experts' Due To Concussion Debate

England captain Dylan Hartley has become embroiled in a concussion debate as the Northampton hooker has not played a game of rugby since the loss to Ireland in the Six Nations.

Today his club announced Hartley will miss the remainder of the season as well as England’s tour to South Africa after advice from several specialists. The 32-year-old released a short statement via the club on Tuesday morning.

It has been recommended by specialists that I take a break this summer and while I find that decision hard to accept, it’s important I listen to that advice. I intend to use this time to recover fully from my injury, so I can be ready to hit the ground running when pre-season training starts later this summer.

He later posted an Instagram taking aim at 'so-called experts.'

Hartley also missed a large chunk of the season in 2016 after two different concussions.
