NRL players to miss at least one match after suffering concussionStory by Adam Pengilly • 2h ago
The NRL will force players diagnosed with a category one concussion to miss at least one match in a landmark decision for the code.
As revealed by the Herald on Monday, after months of discussion the NRL will implement a mandatory 11-day stand down period for any player diagnosed with a brain injury.
The rule is set to be implemented from round three.
It comes as Newcastle Knights star Kalyn Ponga, one of the highest-paid players in the game, faces an indefinite period off the field after suffering his fourth concussion in 10 months last Sunday.
