What is the Blue Card?
Player welfare in NZ Rugby’s priority which is why we’re introducing the Blue Card Concussion Initiative.
Concussion can be serious and requires proper rest and management.
Referees will issue a Blue Card to players who sustain a head knock during a rugby game and demonstrate symptoms of a concussion.
When issued with a Blue Card, the player must leave the field of play and can’t return during the match.
