SAFE Rugby Course Prepares Team Staff For Season Ahead

The new season fast approaches and just as the players get ready for the kick off so too do the medical staff. Members of the provincial and national underage/women’s medical teams underwent a one day SAFE-Rugby Level 3 Refresher course in the AVIVA Stadium this week.

The doctors and chartered physiotherapists took part in a number of lecture based talks and practical skill stations on basic life support, concussion, orthopedic and airway management as well as match day preparation.

The course was facilitated by a team under the guidance of Prof. John Ryan, Leinster Rugby and Shane Mooney, SAFE Rugby Course Co-ordinator.
