Game Safety

Everyone involved in rugby has a role to play in making the game as enjoyable and safe as possible. Those who hold a coaching position also have a specific responsibility to prevent and manage injuries by:

  • Teaching players the correct techniques
  • Not selecting players who may not have fully recovered from injury
  • Encouraging players to be honest about injuries such as concussion which may not be obviously spotted

Support for coaches is available through RFU coaching courses, the RFU's concussion education programme - HEADCASE - and My Rugby Academy
