Pitch Side Concussion Assessment (PSCA) Trials Not Approved for TRU

The Pitch Side Concussion Assessment (PSCA) is NOT in effect anywhere in the USA currently and should not be utilized without approval and consent from the IRB and the Texas Rugby Union (by extension TRRA as well). At this time the PSCA is being trialed at certain IRB and professional matches and was never intended for amateur rugby. At this time, referees are not trained, nor are the matches prepared with proper medical staff (team physicians for both teams and match doctor) nor have they been given education or instruction in the PSCA.

More details on this trial from the IRB can be found here.
