    Dr O’Driscoll resigned his post over this. He insists that WR have dug a hole for themselves and are still digging. HIA 1 is a farce, since the player is only ever removed from play for a Head Injury Assessment of one of the criteria has already been met. So the moment the referee, or anybody else says off, that player is by definition already suspected of concussion. = HIA 1 failed, before the 13 minutes has even begun.
    Dr O’Driscoll dismissed the explanation as “confusing and conflicting and contradictory” and added that World Rugby’s use of pitchside assessments was placing team doctors in an invidious position.

    “The player’s brain is vulnerable after signs or symptoms of a concussion, and, if you look at this 13-minute rule, now, that rugby have, and the guidance they are giving to the elite doctors, it is conflicting,” said Dr O’Driscoll. “It is contradictory and it is putting the doctors in a quite impossible situation.

    “If you have to take a player off for a test of his brain, something has happened and that means you must keep that player off.”
    If the protocol was fit for purpose it’d apply to the amateur game too.

    Looks like Biggar is going to pass his HIA2 and HIA3


    .As far as I understand, he will be ready to go by the time we play Fiji. That's good news," said Jenkins.

    Has any player in the RWC yet had to miss a game because of concussion? Anyone know ?

    Hooley and D'ainu will miss the USA game against France - but I believe neither failed their HIA.

    Unfortunate turn of phrase is Wales Online who also seem to be confirmimg the results of Biggars HIA tests before he has taken them

    On Tuesday, Wales issued a positive injury update on Dan Biggar, confirming he is currently symptom-free of concussion following a failed head injury assessment at the weekend. He will now continue going through the relevant return-to-play protocol before being deemed fit to play.

    So Biggar failed HIA1 last week but as predicted by his coaches passed subsequent tests and played today.

    Today he took a bad knock by anyone standards, and appeared to be out cold.

    Hope he is ok

    We all know that concussion is cumulative .. one concussion males you vulnerable to another. Will he be passed fit for next game ?
