Return2Play speak to The Times

Following the news that Dylan Hartley has been ruled out the England Rugby summer tour, our Medical Director Dr Sam Barke spoke with The Times about all things concussion, the importance of following medical advice and taking the time to fully recover.

It is far more common than people realise for players to suffer delayed symptoms, which can occur up to 48 hours after a concussive injury. This is why education and awareness are so important in rugby because the medics know to keep a close eye on a player in the hours and days after a match, even if concussion is not initially diagnosed.– “S.Barke”
