CONCUSSION IN COMMUNITY RUGBY
While relatively rare, concussion can occur in all sports, particularly where there is full contact. It’s important to know the signs and symptoms of concussion and understand what to do if a concussion is suspected.
Once concussion has been diagnosed, it’s also important to rest and recover in the right way, before returning to physical activity.
Community rugby players are responsible for their own health and must take concussion seriously and stick to New Zealand Rugby’s return to play guidelines.
