An injury that must be reported using this form is defined as any injury occurring during rugby training or game, which requires that the injured player is transported to and/or treated in hospital and all suspected/confirmed concussions.
The purpose of the form is to ensure that all injuries are reported to the IRFU and provincial branches and that a record is kept of these injuries. The IRFU Reportable Injury Form is also a method of data collection for the IRFU.
This will take you to a secure site where you can enter the details of the injury. Please enter your email address carefully. You will then receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with details on how you can log in to a secure mailbox.
This mailbox will contain emails with a copy of each injury report form you have completed this season, including the one you have just completed. The purpose of this mailbox is to ensure that the medical information you are providing is as secure as possible. You will be able to print off the report should you require it for your club/school’s own records.
It is important to note that by filling in the form, the club/school official is not handing over responsibility to the IRFU or their provincial branch for the care or management of the effected player. It remains the responsibility of the club/school official to follow up on their player and report any serious incidents to their province.
