6:44 pm
application of concussion management for male or female athletes. that's largely because of research and mail athletes. everything is male. what we are seeing in our research that actually the risk is different according to the mechanisms different. we are particularly looking for concussions in athletes from collisions. you see that in boys, the half of the concussions and boys were colliding going for the ball. for the girls it was the most common mechanism of injury was actually missed the ball of the goalpost. where looking at different players between boys and girl was that we shouldn't just players between boys and girl was that we shouldn'tjust be waiting for the players we should be looking at them heading the ball and could cause injury? 50 at them heading the ball and could cause injury?— cause in'ury? so bearing in mind what cause injury? so bearing in mind what we know— cause injury? so bearing in mind what we know now, _ cause injury? so bearing in mind what we know now, what - cause injury? so bearing in mind what we know now, what would | cause injury? so bearing in mind i what we know now, what would you advise to the footballing authorities following this research was mac i think one thing is we need a lot more research. halli was mac i think one thing is we need a lot more research.— a lot more research. half the population — a lot more research. half the population is _ a lot more research. half the population is female - a lot more research. half the population is female yet i a lot more research. half the| population is female yet were a lot more research. half the i population is female yet were doing better at researching concussion and female athletes. more research needs

to be done. immediately i think we need to start thinking should it be a sex specific differences in the approach to concussion management? that's including spot of and recovery time. this is controversial but maybe make it sex specific engagement of the game. maybe these girls are getting concussed more regularly from heading the ball then from a collision with the ball. we should think about should adolescent actually be heading the ball at all. heading the ball and football is a problem. and by cutting back our exposure to heading back for the adults cutting back is much as possible of unnecessary training in that. i don't get you to do any harm. australia's prime minister scott morrison says the country's cricketers currently competing in the indian premier league will not be prioritised for a return home, saying "they're under their own resources. " australia's suspended direct flights from india until at least the middle of next month.
