North Midlands are supporting the Community Rugby Injury Surveillance and Protection project which compiles information on injuries occurring in men’s senior teams from levels three to nine.
CRISP is run Dr Simon Roberts and managed by the University of Bath with funding from the RFU as part of the RugbySafe initiative.
The project relies on the voluntary participation of community clubs and has been running for nine seasons, compiling information which is vital in helping reduce injuries outside the full-time professional game.
CRISP will again be compiling information during the 2019/20 season and are looking to recruit clubs willing to participate in the project by mid-August.
More information, including a link to CRISP’s 2017/18 season report can be found at: https://www.englandrugby.com/participation/playing/player-welfare-rugby-safe/rugbysafe-research
