Identifying and managing an Injury

From time to time players will get injured. Here are some tips on how to assess and manage injuries.

Reporting An Injury

Injury reporting is all about gathering information on injuries so that we can learn about why and how they happen – and find ways to prevent similar injuries happening again.

If a player is injured, it’s important they see a health professional (such as a doctor or physio) as soon as possible. ACC can usually help with the costs of treatment.

Injury Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation focuses on restoring the player’s full functions and rugby-specific abilities to prevent re-injury and encourage their best possible performance.
