Rugby players can legally take most painkillers but a debate is brewing on whether they are endangering their health.

Brian Eno's music creation app is coming to Android, 10 years late

Brian Eno's music creation app is coming to Android, 10 years late If you remember the early days of Apple's App Store, you might remember Bloom, Brian Eno's "generative music" app. It showed the potential of the smartphone as an artistic tool at a time when mobile apps were still novelties. Well, it's coming back with a vengeance on its tenth anniversary and it's not just for iOS users this time. Eno and Peter Chilvers are releasing Bloom: 10 Worlds, a "significant" expansion and refinement that will be available for Android in addition to the iPad and iPhone. The core formula, where you touch the screen to introduce new sounds and influence the visuals, remains intact -- there's just a lot more to do.

Joe Molloy, presenter of Newtalks' Off the Ball, quoted stories of team doctors serving painkillers on a frisbee to players.

And O'Driscoll, who retired from the professional game in 2014, revealed this was close to the truth.

“I’d have been part of teams where the doctor would have walked down the bus on the way to games inquiring who wanted what in advance [of kick-off].

“For me, for the last couple of seasons, part of my match prep would have been a Difene and couple of Co-codamol.

“In the Leinster and Irish set-ups you could get your hands on Difene."

Why your brain builds habits

Why your brain builds habits A habit is a behavior that has been repeated enough times to become automatic. The process of habit formation begins with trial and error. 

Brian Gerald O ' Driscoll (born January 21, 1979) is an Irish professional rugby union player. He was captain of the Irish national team and captained Leinster Rugby until the start of 2008 season. Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to use it in a fruit salad.

The former Ireland centre explained that Difene was “just a painkiller if I was carrying something".

He continued: "It almost became like habit, where it gave me a fighting chance if I wasn’t feeling 100 percent that it might have levelled it up.”

Difene and Co-codamol require prescriptions to purchase in a pharmacy and the 39-year-old said they are no longer as freely accessible to the modern rugby player.

"You got to fight your case a bit more now, and prove their necessity.

"Drug cabinets that might have been open once upon a time are very much shut and inaccessible.

“It used to be for sleepers as well. Diazepam [valium] to try and counteract what would happen with the caffeine [tablets] because they couldn’t sleep.

“I’m not saying it was the culture but it happened.”

O'Driscoll says he still takes Difene if his joints stiffen playing golf but would have concerns for players who have become overly reliant on painkillers.

He added: “I wouldn’t change a whole lot, now . . . I haven’t felt any adverse effects.

"Ask me at 75 and see what the state of my insides are like. I didn’t take so many Difene that I’m concerned but there would be players out there taking them every single day, that can’t be good for you."

Etheridge admits Cardiff's away form must improve.
Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge has admitted the club need to start picking up points away from home. However, as reported by BBC Sport, Etheridge was keen to stress that the Bluebirds are doing better than many expected by not being in the bottom three at this stage of the season. The 28-year-old has started every one of the club’s 17 Premier League matches this campaign between the sticks, keeping three clean sheets in the process. The Philippine international has been first choice ‘keeper ever since he moved to South Wales on a free transfer from Walsall the summer before last, and is currently ahead of Alex Smithies in the pecking order. Neil Warnock’s men have claimed 13 of their 14 points at the Cardiff City Stadium this season, with their only away point coming at Huddersfield Town in August. However, Etheridge insists that a continuation of their home form will guide them to safety. He said: “We know that we need to start changing a few things when we travel away from home, but we must concentrate on ourselves. But you have to see the bigger picture; the bigger picture is we’re out of the bottom three.” “Most people expected us to be rock-bottom at this point and… if you look at the bigger picture we’re doing very well. We need to keep grinding away, keep picking up points at home and I’m sure that they’ll come away from home.
