World Rugby Concussion Guidance

With the Rugby World Cup 2019 now in full swing, we thought we’d share the full guidance for players on concussion.

This World Rugby Concussion Guidance document has been developed to provide guidance and information to persons involved in the non-elite level of the game of Rugby regarding concussion and suspected concussion.
Individual member Unions are strongly encouraged to develop their own guidelines and policies, and must use this Concussion Guidance as minimum standards.

These guidelines apply to all male and female Rugby players including adults (over 18 years), adolescents (18 and under) and children (12 and under). Unions can adjust these age levels upwards at their discretion.

Many thanks and credit to
