Sports Labs Hosts HIC Round Robin

World Rugby and seven accredited test institutes made the trip to Scotland on 10 June to take part in an evaluation of a potential change to the current method for assessing the HIC properties of artificial surfaces for rugby. Sports Labs organised a set of standard tiles for initial laboratory evaluation of the devices before transporting participants to a number of fields to perform on-site testing. The objective of the trial is to assess the prospect of reducing the amount of time it takes to perform this type of test on artificial rugby fields.
