MG Ponga Concussion

MG Reacts To The NRL’s Mandatory 11-Day Stand-Down For Concussed Players

The NRL will now impose a mandatory 11-day minimum stand-down policy for all players who suffer a concussion.

Triple M’s Mark Geyer weighed-in on the landmark moment for rugby league on Thursday’s edition of Mick & MG In The Morning.


A category 1 concussion will automatically see a player stood-down a minimum of 11 days, meaning they could miss two matches.
