Rugby Ready - World Rugby's preparation resource

Injury management

Injury reporting

Clubs should maintain a record of injuries that occur. This will enable any patterns and common injuries to be identified and appropriate preventative actions to be taken.This will also provide a record in case of any enquiries or complaints that may be made at a latter date.

Where regions/provinces or Unions have injury reporting systems, it is important that these are complied with. This type of information helps inform player welfare policy and training, such as Rugby Ready.
