RFU Headcase Concussion

2 weeks ago By Dave Hudson

Could all Players and Parents please take time out to understand concussion

Below is a link to a concussion video from the RFU website, it steps you through the basics of recognising concussion and what steps you may need to take if you suspect a player is suffering from the symptoms of concussion. Copy the link below into your browser, and please take time out to watch

There is also a Return to play after concussion document in the Document section if you wish to download

Do not be a head case - take the course.

New online concussion education courses have been launched, aimed at players, coaches and match officials for the community game. We would encourage everyone to do the courses to help raise awareness of concussion throughout the game.

Available at www.EnglandRugby.com/Headcase

The 30 minute courses will take you through why it's important to manage concussion properly, and how everyone has a role in protecting and helping players through their recovery and return to play. The courses also highlight the potential and serious consequences of the injury.

Based on the "4Rs" - Recognise, Remove, Recover and Return – the courses reinforce the messages that have been delivered through the ‘Headcase’ website, Rugby Ready courses and promotional materials over the last 18 months.
