IRFU guidelines have been updated to reflect the latest medical advice from the 5th International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport which indicates that players who have suffered from a suspected or confirmed concussion should minimise complete rest to 24-48 hours, returning to normal every day activities and light exercise after this.
