Sexton’s shock at blacks, World Rugby reacts


Zapping World Fifteen Rugby: 15 highest paid players

As XV Du Clover’s summer tour of New Zealand comes to an end (along with the Irish who won the series for the New Zealanders), there is one player who still talks: that of Jonathan Sexton.

It is now a habit to see Ireland’s star at the heart of concerns and on one particular subject: concussions. Because, sad to say, there have been countless knockouts that the opener has suffered. The most recent example began this summer, when, during the tour, he was dropped for the first Test against the Blacks (he later did not play in that match), only to be put back in the holder a week later. , for the next meeting. The decision was hotly debated and considered irresponsible for the player’s health.

Following this controversy, World Rugby decided to speak to the Irish staff to validate the decision, thus confirming that Sexton could be deployed in the second match without any problems. Allan Gilpin, Managing Director of World Rugby, spoke perfectly

Johnny came in with an HIA1 protocol, which is actually the first tool to detect if it’s a concussion. He passed it, meaning he didn’t screw up.

In short

Jonathan Sexton’s case is still being talked about, even after his reign against blacks this summer, and another shocker a week later. Once again, World Rugby wanted to respond and express themselves in terms of the player who had caused so much talk.
