The Sharks Match Day Medical Panel which provides support to all injured players, has been in existence since 1969. According to World Rugby requirements, all Test, Super Rugby and Currie Cup matches played at JONSSON KINGS PARK need to have a match doctor, a concussion doctor, a surgery doctor and a concussion video analysist in attendance.
