Why do professional rugby players wear tape around their head?

Wouldn’t the tape fall off? Aren’t they better off wearing a scrum cap?

    Because they don't want their eyes from being wrecked!

    Just to keep their ears down - some find the scrum cap too restricting

    They use tape to protect their ears.

  • Protects the ears against cauliflower ear. If it's taped correctly it doesn't come off during a game.

    Scrum caps are great but some people don't want to wear one; they prefer the tape job.

    The tape wouldn't fall off- it's taped to itself. They tape their ears down so they don't rub their ears in a scrum- scrum caps are for wimps.

    They also sometimes tape their wrists for stiff arming people.

    They do not wear tape. But some of them wear a band to protect their ears.
