    Rugby player could make work accident claim after on-pitch fight leaves him with brain damage

    By David Brown on September 21, 2010

    A rugby player has sustained a serious brain injury after an incident during a match at the weekend, reports the Northern Echo.

    Tuui Redrava, who is originally from Fiji, was injured on Saturday afternoon in York during a rugby league game between his team – York Railway Institute – and opposition Doncaster Thorensians. Some sources claim that an altercation between Mr Redrava and three other players resulted in the 30 year old being attacked, although this has not been confirmed by police who are still keen to speak to any witnesses from the game.

    The club have agreed to fly Mr Redrava’s mother out from Fiji to visit him in Leeds General Infirmary, where his condition was initially classified as ‘critical’ but has now improved, police said today.

    Although it is unusual for sports injuries to be the origin of a work accident claim, it could be possible for Mr Redrava to seek compensation for his injuries if the altercation was not part of normal play.

    His team said, “We are hoping for a speedy recovery and we will keep everyone updated with any progress.”
