Players injured in the sporting field will soon be receiving advance treatment from the attendants.

Twenty participants were part of the Immediate Care in Rugby (ICIR) Level Two workshop hosted by Oceania Rugby at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva yesterday. The workshop was opened by the Minister for Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou.

The participants will be putting into practice what they have learned during the 2018 Oceania Rugby Sevens Championship which gets underway on Friday at the ANZ Stadium, Suva.

Speaking during the press conference, Tuitubou said the workshop would help participants improve their standards.

“The workshop will enable you to improve the provision of immediate trauma and medical care for players, facilitating not only a reduction in injuries,” he said.

“It is important to enhance your knowledge and skills as field of play practitioners.

 

UNITY THROUGH RUGBY

“My ministry fully supports this drive for more awareness in the delivery care to players not only rugby but for all sports.

“This workshop will raise the bar on how we react to field-emergencies during games and also enhance the care of our rugby players.

“The sport such as rugby plays important roles in the Oceania in bringing Pacific island nations together.”

Oceania Rugby regional training manager and World Rugby Talemo Waqa said the workshop assists participants with what they would need during the games.

“This workshop is very important to the participants as they prepare for the Oceania 7s which starts on Friday.

“We’re grateful with the assistance that Government has provided us with,” he added.
