Player safety at rugby union matches is once again in the headlines. Perhaps most notably during the 2015 RBS Six Nations, but also in other leagues and championships. Head injuries in particular have come in for close scrutiny – however, prevention is often better than cure, so Ardagh Development is delighted that Oxford RFC recently put recent Ardagh’s sponsorship to good use.
David Bagnall, Chairman, Oxford RFC wrote to Kevin Watkins, “Thank you for your generous support of the Oxford Rugby Club, which has enabled us to buy a new set of post protectors for our playing side.”
Whilst this is just one part of the overall safety landscape of the modern game, it is undoubtedly an important one and Ardagh Development is proud to be able to contribute to player safety.
