#1 He maintains its not something he is trying to do.I dont try and be like him. von mary123 06.10.2019 09:06

Lots of things happened during the 240 minutes of World Club Series action last weekend and there has been lots said and written about it. Im going to take a week to reflect on the rugby before I comment but one thing stood out to me. It wasnt a pass, tackle, kick, offload or try. No, it was the medical care given to a player during a match. Concussion in sport is a hot topic at present. The American actor Will Smith stars in a Hollywood movie about it and all major team sports are trying their best to bring themselves up to speed with the latest findings. Players, coaches, officials, administrators, fans and commentators need to be aware of the latest guidelines regarding head injuries, and the way that these are dealt with.The head coach and the CEO also have a responsibility for the health and wellbeing of their players during a match. The coach doesnt want an unsteady or disorientated player in his defensive line, nor does the CEO wish to appear in a medical negligence hearing.We now know more than we did 20 years ago and its important that we all act on this knowledge. Highlights of Sydney Roosters 38-12 win over St Helens in the World Club Series Early in the game at Langtree Park last Friday Jayden Nikorima received a bang to the head which left him lying on the ground.The chief medical officer for England Rugby League, Dr Chris Brookes, was assisting the Roosters throughout the game and was swiftly on the scene.He then followed the protocols sent out by the RFL to all clubs and their medical staff to improve the care for players, while also allowing those who are fit and able to carry on playing. Chester sacked by Hull KR Chris Chester leaves Robins after poor start to the season Dr Brookes sent me this to explain what happens: Concussion is a difficult and challenging diagnosis to make.The injury itself is a disturbance in brain function following a blow to the head and may reveal itself via a variety of symptoms and signs. Examples of these are headache, unsteadiness, confusion or even change in the players personality. Dr Chris Brookes congratulates Sean OLoughlin after Englands win over France in 2012 It is therefore especially important that any player suspected of suffering from concussion is removed from the field for a comprehensive clinical assessment.When a player is removed from the field for a concussion assessment, the laws of the game allow for a free interchange to occur. This is time limited to not less than 15 minutes to allow the assessment, at the end of which the player is either deemed fit to return or needs to be permanently replaced.The assessment always occurs in the privacy of the dressing room and the first five minutes are utilised in allowing the player to settle from the intensity of the game and prepare for the formal concussion assessment. This consists of a standard format, with a series of questions to assess the players recollection of the game and then a conversation around the circumstances of what happened to precipitate the injury.This is the followed by evaluation of symptoms (headache, nausea, balance problems) and a series of memory tests specifically focusing on memory and concentration.This comprehensive raft of clinical tools provides the doctor with the necessary suite of information upon which he/she can then make their final judgement regarding return to play or withdraw the player from further participation. Hull FC v Castleford Tigers Three key battles in Thursdays Super League clash Even if they return to the field, they are continually observed for any signs suggestive of concussion (eg poor balance) with re-evaluation at half-time or full-time as appropriate.Our knowledge of concussion is continually evolving and I am proud that rugby league is regarded as being at the vanguard of protecting our players from unnecessary unpleasant and probably harmful complications of head impacts.The RFL has a very good head injury management policy and all of the medical staff have been invited to attend sessions provided by experts in this area. Theyve received the latest protocols and been reminded of their duty of care. Aidan Guerra is congratulated after scoring the second of Sydney Roosters seven tries against St Helens Unfortunately for St Helens supporters, Nikorima was passed fit to return and went on to have an outstanding game for the Roosters.However, there is one suggestion that Id like to put to the Super League clubs and Dr Brookes.Most of their coaches have a monitor which allows them to watch the action. Some of them have this on a five-second delay so that they can quickly review a missed tackle, try, etc.It would seem obvious to me that they get their video analyst to provide the medical staff with a monitor and feed of the game so that they can quickly review all of the injuries, especially the ones to the head.I know that the score is important, but not as important as a players health.Watch Hull FC v Castleford live on Sky Sports 2 HD on Thursday from 7.30pm.

Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions. South Africa got an early sighting of the future on the third day of the Hobart Test and the good news is that it appears bright. In Temba Bavuma and Quinton de Kock, they have a middle-order pair who balance caution and creativity, and at 26 and 23 years old respectively, could serve them for at least the next five years.Both have roots in Johannesburg, the city of gold, where they each attended prestigious sporting schools - Bavuma was at St Davids, de Kock at King Edward VII - and played for the Lions. But it is here in Hobart, some might say the city of cold, where their Test tryst has truly blossomed. They put on 144 together, the highest sixth-wicket partnership by a visiting team at the Bellerive Oval, and stretched South Africas lead to what may turn out to be a match-winning one.In a morning session that ground Australias attack down, Bavuma and de Kock underlined the difference between the two sides. Its not just that South Africas batsmen have the temperament to spend time in the middle, its that their newer batsmen do. Australias middle-order has not yet shown that temperament. It isnt the first time on this tour that Bavuma and de Kock have done this - in Perth, South Africa were 81 for 5 when the pair come together and added 71, which helped the visitors move to 242.In Hobart, when Bavuma and de Kock came together on the first day, South Africa were already ahead. They had recovered from 76 for 4, when Bavuma had walked in to bat, to 132 for 5. Bavuma was on 28 off 51 balls, had survived a few early scares and earned the praise of former South Africa captain Graeme Smith. I love Temba Bavuma, keep going big man, Smith tweeted.If South Africa were to extend their advantage, Bavuma needed a partner and thats where de Kock was crucial. They complemented each other perfectly.Bavuma has already shown an appetite for a fight. In Perth, he spent two hours and 17 minutes helping Faf du Plessis save South Africa from a first-innings collapse. He has an ability to absorb pressure.De Kock has the capacity to transfer pressure back to the bowler. He is an energetic player who does not allow anyone to dictate his approach. Perhaps, he has a bit of the David Warner license to play his natural game, but he does not abuse that. He is inventive, risk-taking and quick-scoring.With a stubborn batsman at one end and a busy one at the other, Australia spent the morning session under the pump. They were able to make things look more difficult for Bavuma, especially in Mitchell Starcs opening spell. He moved the ball away, probed the area outside off stump, trying to incite the drive, but Bavuma was not tempted. He is a compact player with a tight technique, who makes the opposition work for his wicket. Josh HHazlewood almost claimed it - he got a ball to kick up and Bavuma nearly played on while trying to fend it.dddddddddddd He survived and got two off the next ball to reach his second fifty on this tour.De Kock had begun the day 10 runs behind Bavuma, but caught up quickly. His fifty came off 70 balls, and then he surged past Bavuma. While Bavuma fought through the 50s, de Kock raced to 80. He created run-scoring opportunities by playing late, piercing gaps and maintained a consistent scoring rate throughout his innings. De Kocks first fifty had taken him 70 balls and the second took 69. Instinctive shots is how he described what he did on Monday.Compare that to the 119 balls Bavuma faced for his fifty, and you have an idea of the difference between them. For a team, having two players of this calibre is ideal and the results are showing.In this year, de Kock has scored 560 runs in six Tests at an average of 80.00, while Bavuma has accumulated 465 runs in seven Tests at 58.12. Hashim Amla - 611 runs at 55.54 - is the only South Africa batsman to have scored more runs in 2016.Among de Kocks knocks was a maiden hundred in Centurion and five successive scores of fifty or more, including this century. His consistency has cemented him in the Test XI and comparisons with the best are mushrooming. The most notable one is with Adam Gilchrist, and now that de Kock has scored a second Test century, on Gilchrists birthday and at the same ground where the former Australia wicketkeeper scored his maiden hundred, those could continue. He maintains its not something he is trying to do.I dont try and be like him. Thats just the way I play. I dont see myself being like him. I just see the ball, hit the ball. I have my own game plan. Some days, I can get off to a good start and keep a good momentum. Some days, I have to grind it out, de Kock said.On other days, Bavuma does the grinding. He has been spoken of as a batsman similar to Gus Logie, partly because of his height, mostly because of his fight. By lunch, Bavuma had faced 201 deliveries. Australias entire first innings lasted only 197.With Bavuma and de Kock coming of age, South Africa could have a few selection headaches when a fit AB de Villiers returns to the XI. One possibility is for de Kock to move to the top-two, especially if Stephen Cook keeps misfiring. but with concerns surrounding workload, it may not happen. Another solution is to leave Faf du Plessis and JP Duminy to fight it out, but with du Plessis making a strong case to stay on as captain, that may also prove tricky. For now, its a problem South Africa wont mind having. ' ' '
