Do head guards work?
Head guards reduce the risk of soft tissue injuries to the head and ears from tackles or at rucks (Jones et al., 2003). This includes cuts, grazes, swelling and cauliflower ear (where the ear develops a blood clot from being hit and becomes swollen and deformed). Wearing head guards also prevents hair from impeding a player's vision. Head guards have not been shown to prevent concussions.
