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.
Players deemed to have suffered a category 2 concussion could be cleared to play in their side’s next game provided they meet with an NRL-approved neurologist.
