Telegraph Revealed: The secret to Harlequins’ stunning revival

Harlequins reveal the use of the PROTECHT mouthguard has decreased the amount of contact a player receives in training and has significantly reduced the amount of injuries in the squad.

Danny Care, Quins scrum half explains “I have spanned quite a lot of the professional era because I am so old now and a lot of the people who I have played with have mild forms of dementia from repeat concussions,” he says. “A lot of them are the guys who are going through the lawsuit. I played with a lot of those lads at Leeds, I know them personally and I know how rugby, the sport they loved and I love, can have really bad consequences on health.

“So having seen that happen first-hand to people that I know, when PROTECHT came and they had this invention that can fit into a gumshield that can monitor how hard people are getting hit, and how many times people are getting hit, I was like: ‘this is mind-blowing!’ Why didn’t we have this back when I started? How many of these lads wouldn’t have mild forms of dementia?”
