Recognise and remove

Concussion is an issue that affects all sports and it is important that everyone in Rugby recognises the symptoms of concussion and removes from playing or training any player with clear or suspected symptoms.

The message is simple – Recognise and remove. Recognise the symptoms of concussion and permanently remove a player displaying any of those symptoms.

If in doubt, sit them out, there is NO Head Injury Assessment (HIA) in Community Rugby


If you have not already done so - please visit our online modules for concussion management for best practice within the community game:
