Serious Injury Reporting:

Clubs, schools, colleges and events are responsible for reporting injuries that happen to their players which fall into the following criteria:

· An injury which results in the player being admitted to a hospital (this does not include those that  attend an Accident or Emergency Department and are allowed home from there).

· Deaths which occur during or within 6 hours of a game finishing.

To report injuries call 0800 298 0102, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 

The IPF team have an on-call rota to ensure this is monitored throughout weekends/holidays, and will take on the role of being the main point of contact, offering welfare support to the family, club and communicating the incident to the various stakeholders within the RFU (regional staff, press team).

Injury report forms and all contact information is available at www.EnglandRugby.com/FirstAid.  Just follow the link in the menu bar to "injury reporting".

This should be done as soon as possible and certainly within 48 hours of the incident so that the IPF can provide welfare support if appropriate which can be critical in the first few days following a catastrophic injury. 

Even if the full details are not yet known, please do ensure the injury is reported so we can act if required.


The RFU can now offer excellent value on the purchase of Rugby Posts from Harrod UK.

This is achieved by effectively making the RFU a retailer in the supply chain. For further information please click here for offer, and click here for the rugby deal profile document.
