Don't Be a Head Case

Concussion: The RFU takes the welfare of players very seriously. Concussion is important to recognise and manage appropriately, whether a coach, match official, parent, player, teacher or healthcare professional we all have a part to play. For more information relevant to your role, please go to the HEADCASE page and don’t be a HEADCASE. In addition. HRFU are now recording all reported concussions and have also published the "Headcase in Hampshire" document, which contains excellent information and guidance.
