Injury: Head injuries in rugby and the law: analysis
Players often ignore the dangers of head injuries -
especially concussive injuries - due to their keenness to continue playing.
Jack Anderson, a Lecturer in sports law at Queen's University Belfast, examines
the US approach to this problem in American football, the pressurised sporting
environment that often leads to club medics making wrong decisions and
potential solutions to the dangers posed by concussive injuries. He also
highlights the threat that rugby faces from potential litigation.
