PREVENTION, EDUCATION & RESEARCH

PROTECT THE PLAYER, PROTECT THE GAME.

​​​​​​​

The Foundation isn’t just the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff. We provide research grants to leading-edge research into injury prevention and also promote for safe play for all New Zealand rugby players.

We champion safety in the game we love, so when a player even steps on to a pitch, we know that they will be playing and refereed in a way that ensures safety and is backed by peer reviewed and published research.

We partner with education institutions (Auckland University and AUT) on ground-breaking research to enable better concussion management and support New Zealand Rugby and ACC, to encourage fewer rugby injuries through prevention, awareness and education.
