Our Missions & Causes in Rugby

Dr. Bennett Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist, whose work was featured in the movie "Concussion", has called for contact sports such as rugby, mixed martial arts and American football to be banned for individuals under the age of 18. Dr. Omalu said that “after only one season of rugby, your child may have suffered brain damage” as the human brain does not have any reasonable capacity to regenerate itself.  This section deals with current issues that expose players to a higher incidence of concussion and associated progressive neurological disorders in Rugby and what measures we need to take in order to make it a safer sport.
