Referee's Training Inadequate?

Not sure what I think about this, whilst it our duty to provide a safe environment we are not there to diagnose or treat a medical condition. Since this match involved school boys the primary care should lie with coaches or teachers and I would question what the first-aid provision was before laying the blame with the referee.

Referee's training inadequate, rugby death inquest told -

Its still a good idea to have a look at this.

Interesting post - I am a ref but not first aider. I always expect a coach to deal with injury, and they refer to first-aider. I will distribute the Scat document to minis coaches.
