Concussion

Janny has claimed that all the blows he takes to his head AND all the times he has led to the pitch has ONLY led to 2 or 3 concussions

This is without doubt a failure of the medical staff

Players want to play but players must be protected. Why is Janny allowed to pedal such things?

Do professional rugby players have annual "brain scans"? Or would too many players be forced to retire?

A waste of time and money at the moment. Concussion does not show any signs on available scans. In addition, it is a temporary condition and the physical abnormalities in brain chemistry are back to normal within a fortnight.
That's not to say that symptoms necessarily settle as quickly, although they do in around 90% of cases.
What is important (and is done) is that players have a full neurological testing carried out in the preseason period and, if deemed necessary, at other times.

Janny is not concussed say Leinster
Except he certainly took ANOTHER bang to the head and certainly appeared to be showing the symptoms of concussion on TV

Russ this might even be interesting if it were not your 7th Annual "Why does Concussed J.de Loop not retire?" thread.

Almost as tiresome as Knocknagoney Michael's fevered pursuit of Trevor Brennan now in its 4000 & something day. So old it's older than Ron'n. :roll:

He smacked his loaf on the ground but the medics are instructed to make it look like a neck injury! If Gilly played for Leinster his steaker/broken cheekbone would be listed as a tennis elbow.

His head was hit twice in the one replay and Barnes claims he hurt his neck.
