It's disappointing that we can't find any other threads on Concussion.

We've certainly started a few.

This is a worrying one, with Ashton Hewitt still suffering headaches after four months following a concussion. The lad is only 22, and no set return date in sight.

Away from rugby. Here in USA Dale Earnhardt Jr is retiring from Nascar racing
at the end of this season due to his having several concussions in the past
few seasons.
It is good to see a young man realize that his health is more important than
the fame & money his sport can bring him.

Latest 'research' suggesting strength of the neck muscles could play a pivotal part, if you'll pardon the pun!
