Yep, unless there is some protection for the head that keeps the head stable and stops the brain moving in the skull.



So it’s all about identifying it and implementing rules/protocols around return to play.

Quite difficult in combat sports where the objective is to concuss your opponent.


Pretty much and about everyone involved being serious about the return to play protocols.

Also try not to get in the head.






I hope on one discovers he was also a prominent rugby player too…


It’s a sad story but a rubbish article. It starts off by talking about a footballer getting 6 concussions before he is 20, but then goes on to say his first one was in a rugby game when he was 15. Where he got the next 2 is unclear but it seems to also have been in rugby games. The damage was clearly done from getting a first concussion so young, from then on he was just waiting for the next to occur.
