From Carlos Scartascini #skills, macroeconomics and finance, social issues

Not all sports programmes deliver benefits. The intensity of engagement matters. More intense, structured and supported programmes such as Atlas's Schools and Grassroots projects offer more benefit than unstructured or unsupervised programmes. Rugby includes the ability to control emotions and show empathy for others. This leads to stronger networks of relationships, that economists call social capital.

Rugby's physicality and need for back-up build stronger social connections which can lead to more cohesive and resilient societies.
