Mud heaps were the norm, particulary in winter, which were more forgiving but particularly fun for Jack Edwards and his sliding tackle.
Players are bigger fitter and more finely honed than in the old days. This applies to all sport. Look how many cricketers break down with injury,this hardly happened in the past.
Mind you medical treatment is better . A torn cartliege was a season if not career ending injury. Now they seem to be back in 6 weeks or less.

Question I always wonder about is what would players like Don Rogers be like if they had to days fitness?
