WHY is Rugby Ready necessary?

Rugby Union is a game played by two teams of 7, 10 or 15 players that physically contest for the ball and, as such, the game carries a risk of injury.
Research has identified the magnitude, nature and sources of these risks.
It is the responsibility of all people involved in the game of Rugby to understand and manage these risks within acceptable levels.

WHAT is its purpose?

Rugby Ready aims to assist in the communication and understanding of the risks associated with Rugby and to raise awareness of good practice.

WHO is it aimed at?

Rugby Ready is designed as a resource for all potential participants in the Game of Rugby, including players, coaches, match officials, parents, teachers, first-aiders and volunteers supporting players and coaches on match day and during training.
