From: Match injuries in amateur Rugby Union: a prospective cohort study - FICS Biennial Symposium Second Prize Research Award

Time loss from play N (%) IIRMHE (95 % CI)
Less than one-week   
 Slight (0–1 day) 55 (42.6 %) 22.3 (16.8–29.1)
 Minimal (2–3 days) 4 (3.1 %) 1.6 (0.4–4.2)
 Mild (4–7 days) 23 (17.8 %) 9.3 (5.9–14.0)
Greater than one-week   
 Moderate (8–28 days) 26 (20.2 %) 10.6 (6.9–15.5)
 Severe (>28 days) 20 (15.5 %) 8.1 (5.0–12.5)
