"With the recent launch of the WRUs concussion awareness programme at Pontyclun RFC and it’s highlighted media exposure during this week’s Scrum V, please find enclosed detail of “Concussion: Recognise & Remove” guidance notes and a link to the WRU’s online resource facility: www.wru.co.uk/medical


Please can you circulate this within your clubs to all those parties that have contact with and care for players. This should include but is not restricted to volunteers, coaches, referees, first aiders, club safeguarding officer, and any other pitch side support staff you may deploy.
