New concussion rules to come into effect

Rugby players will face an increased period of 12 days away from the game under new concussion rules.

Players with a history of concussion – or those removed from a match with clear concussion symptoms – will face the maximum time on the side lines.

No player will be allowed to return to action earlier than seven days after a head injury.

This will take effect from July the 1st.
