    taping your ears.

    OK imagine a picture if a rugby player here with their ears taped up. I still haven't figured out pictures since my thingy filled up.

    OK so it is a pretty common practice among rugby players to prevent ear damage

    I did it when I played. So should it work with wrestling and if so why don't people do it?

    That is actually really complicated. I just used electrical tape.

    I am a rugger and alternate between playing prop and lock and have my ears taped for nearly every game. I tried taping my ears the same way for wrestling instead of getting ear guards and it started sliding when any sort or grip or rotational pull happened.

    I thought wrestlers had those ear guard things for headgear.

    Wrestlers do them but very few other martial arts do. And apparently cauliflower ears suck.

    By the way what is everybodies treatment? We tend to just syringe the blood out and put a peg on it.

    I played as a winger so please excuse my ignorance on the game of rugby, but isn't taping your ears up a total "look at me, I'm so old-school hard" thing?

    You can get decent light scrum caps now that do as good a job without requiring as much effort to put on. OK, they do not look nearly as cool, but ease of use has got to count for something. Same thing goes for wrestling head gear - you might look a bit of a div, but your ears are protected and it was easy to put on and take off again.

    Might be time to go and stand between the 5m and touch line crack.

    Scrum caps get in the way and they're a pain in arse to keep readjusting as well as being quite easy to pull down over the face so people can't see what they're doing in a ruck. Plus I've never trusted a prop wearing headgear for some reason.
