We would like to comment on the review article by Shuttleworth-Edwards . 'Ethically we can no longer sit on the fence - a neuropsychological perspective on the cerebrally hazardous contact sports', published in the July edition of your .

Overall, this article is well researched and written. However, as well as highlighting a number of important observations made in this article, we would like to emphasise the progress that has been made in developing a community-based return-to-play concussion programme in South Africa, thus illustrating that a high level of care can be sourced for patients with concussion wishing to return safely to collision and contact sports.
