Rugby League players launch landmark case against RFL
75 rugby league players have launched a landmark case against the RFL after being stricken by brain injuries
1. Did the players play a sport where you know physical contact is made?
2. Did these players mitigate their risk by wearing headgear?
3. After they sustained their first injury, did they return to the field despite experience?
Next we'll get boxers suing the industry for issues related to being hit.
Come on now.
My limited understanding of the law has me thinking that you can only sue if there is negligence or if there is a failure in the duty of care on the part of the club or sport administration ...
The NRL will be trying to prove they have taken all recommended steps to mitigate injury and protect players .. and that they have not been negligent ..
10 years later and the winners are .. the lawyers
My mate is working with bran scanning machinery that the UFC have purchased in the USA. It detects swelling in the brain in real time with percentages on severity leading to medical time outs.
He’s peddling it to the ARU at the moment, and testing is happening with the juniors in sone NSW teams.
The NRL is next in line to do the preview. The AFL didn’t want a bar of it for some reason. He was saying that that didn’t want to acknowledge fault. so didn’t want to even look at the technology.
Interesting that the ARU will be the first to roll it out if it’s passed by the A.M.A.
Mustn't hurt as much in the nrl.What spins me out is that in the NHL, if a player gets a concussion, they could be out 4-6 months normally. NRL, they are generally right within a week or two.
