AFL concussion rule didn’t help recovery time in 2020

Despite the five-day rule, players returned to the field too early in 2020.

Four men. One wears yellow, one wears pink, one wears blue and white, one ears purple. The man in blue has his arms around the men in pink and purple. The man in yellow touches the man in teal's head.
