The Irish Rugby Football Union, in conjunction with Munster, Connacht, Leinster and Ulster Rugby, today launched a new concussion guide to educate those playing, supporting or officiating rugby.
Overall it’s been great from the start, it was straight into training for me and I enjoyed that, and it’s been a good few weeks.
I suppose coming in it was kind of like that first day of school. I think on the Sunday I was nervous because I was still living at home and I was leaving the comfort of it all so it was a two in one. But it was fine and once I got down I got straight into it and the training is keeping me occupied, and then you’re going home, eating and sleeping so you don’t have much more to be doing.
I’m getting used to everything around me now and I just can’t wait to get playing. I think that’s a natural thing that you are dying to get out and play a game with your new team-mates. It’s all well and good training together but you’re down here to play rugby and to play matches and that’s what I really want to do."
Munster kick off their season with the SEAT Series on Saturday August 24th in Thomond Park against Gloucester Rugby at 5pm. Tickets are available to buy for the game online here.
