Castleford Tigers’ club doctor hits out at new rules

Castleford Tigers’ club doctor Nick Raynor has criticised the new laws brought in by the RFL, regarding injury treatment.

The RFL ratified a series of new regulations at the beginning of the week in an attempt to reduce the amount of gamesmanship that is becoming more common in Super League:

“It is becoming increasingly noticeable that at key times in games, players are being treated on field for injury and the referee has no option but to stop the game. This has resulted in complaint from coaches, increased length of games and frustration from media and fans that the flow of the game is disrupted.

“The Board has therefore accepted a Laws Committee recommendation to adopt the NRL policy relating to injury stoppages. This will ensure the effective treatment of players remains a priority without encouraging gamesmanship whilst retaining an entertaining spectacle.”

But, Raynor has now raised concerns.
