USA Rugby Concussion Clarification
In a letter to all referees and coaches, USA Rugby’s Dr. Harry Laws issued information to clarify that there is no “Brain Bin” for any USA rugby competitions except Elite international level contests. Referees and coaches are directed to follow IRB Regulation 10, which in summary requires:
All players with suspected concussion where there is no appropriately qualified person is present to diagnose concussion must be removed from the field of play and
not return to play or train on the same day and should be reviewed by an appropriately qualified person and then should complete the graduated return to play
protocol described in the IRB Concussion Guidelines; and
Where concussion is diagnosed, a player must be removed from the field of play and not return to play or train on the same day and must be guided through a dedicated return to play protocol.
For more information on this matter, please reference: http://usarugby.org/concussions/irb
Referees and coaches are also encouraged to view IRB’s Concussion Management modules at:
