Concussion – If a doctor, referee or first aid person says that a concussion has occured, the ARU Headsafe protocols rules apply. Key points are to stop playing immediately if concussion is a possibility, and if confirmed a player can only return to play after two weekends off and with a doctor’s certificate of clearance.
Injury notices to our Club – If a child is injured at all while playing or training with the Roos, please email us with the name, age, injury, whether an ambulance was called, and whether an insurance claim is being made.
