Concussion Management for the General Public

This resource is designed for anyone involved in Rugby - players, coaches, parents, teachers, match officials, spectators, and anyone else with a role or interest in the Game. It is designed to ensure that players who suffer concussion are managed effectively to protect their long-term health and welfare.

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.

Working together with players, coaches, administrators, medics, scientists, the media and supporters, we can ensure the welfare of those who take the field at all levels of the game is protected.
