Published November 8, 2013
RUGBY: In Sydney, Bret Harris reported the Int'l Rugby Board's annual Medical Commission Conference "will take place in Dublin in just over a week's time, with experts considering key areas of player welfare, including concussion strategy." Robert Cantu, a renowned neurosurgeon and sports concussion expert, "has been critical of the IRB's stance on some concussion-related issues." Cantu rejected the IRB's assertion that there was "no scientific link" between concussion and CTE. He said, "That's head-in-the-sand stuff if you believe that" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 11/8).
