Wallabies fly-half Bernard Foley suffers concussion setback

The 27 year old Australia fly-half rugby player, Bernard Foley has suffered a concussion setback during his long-awaited return for the Waratahs.

Foley played his first match of the season against Melbourne Rebels on Friday after missing four games following a pre-season game where he sustained a head injury. Although he was cleared to play reports confirmed the concussion symptoms returned after the away game last Friday.

The Waratahs coach Daryl Gibson said "Bernard's welfare is our priority right now and our medical team are taking an active treatment process to manage his symptoms,

Therefore, from a coaching perspective, it's (only) a game at the end of the day. It's not worth risking the rest of someone's life for a game."
