Are you reporting injuries?
Do you know what to do if you sustain an injury whilst playing rugby?
The GRFU website has now been updated to help keep us all aware.
Any serious injury that entails an overnight hospitalisation (not just an A&E visit) must be reported; the relevant form can be found on the Injury Reporting link on our website.
Rugby is a contact sport that has risks. Thankfully the numbers of serious injuries in our sport are low. Yet, by reporting incidents, it will help us learn and mitigate future injuries.
Please review RFU Activate to help minimise player injury rates and the recent RugbySafe Roadshow presentation (both on our website under the RugbySafe tab on the top menu) to understand more.
