Injuries in Rugby


RugbySmart is the most successful injury prevention programme run by any sport in New Zealand and is certainly one of the most successful performance and injury prevention programmes anywhere in the world.

"The best predictor of injury is recent injury. And the message from this is you don’t play injured. You make sure you get an injury treated properly, fully recovered and then get back on the rugby field."
