England and New Zealand rugby players will wear mouthguards for "head impact study"

England and New Zealand rugby women will wear a specialized mouthguard which will gauge the damage done to the head during the game. This mouthguard experiment can help in the research regarding the amount of brain damage and the impact on the brain overall during the game.

There are some studies that show that women are two times likely more than men to get a concussion. The first test between the two teams will take place on 31 October. Recently, many former players have filed cases against World Rugby Union for having early-stage dementia due to head-to-head contact in Rugby.

Making rugby safer for every player at all levels of the game is hugely important and we're pleased to contribute.
