Who says they were concussions?
Failing the in game HIA doesn't automatically mean someone was concussed does it?
Liam Knight another with concussion issues.
Seems to be adding up.
reckon Dallas Johnson remembers much of his career? Hardest f**king merkin but geez did he know a thing or two about concussions
I would say the incidence is no higher. The spotlight is just brighter, the risk aversion has kicked in and the guidelines are being followed.
I can not imagine there were less concussions in the pre NRL era.
Here we are again - I’m pretty sure I heard Wade talking after his last concussion about the rule changes and he nearly said something along the lines of hating the idea of being forced to retire because of head knock rules - he changed the way he was saying it and it left me thinking at the time he was worried the next one would be his last.
His tackle technique for those almost front on tackles is dreadful, gets his head in the wrong place far too often, but even with that, the knocks he’s taking aren’t that heavy, certainly not so heavy to leave him doing the involuntary shakey leg.
Might be close to the end, and the sad thing is I don’t think that would be too much of a loss.
Mate there were stacks.Mario Fenech as an example,saw him come off at Belmore not knowing where he was.
You'd think there was an inventor capable of producing a light weight headgear ,that is capable of reducing dramatically concussions caused by impacts.Never solve the problem 100% but any big reduction is a plus IMO.
