Primary tabs

21. A player may be replaced if injured. An injured player may not return once replaced.

22. A player is deemed to be injured if:

a. At national representative level, it is the opinion of a doctor that it would be inadvisable for the player to continue.
b. In other matches, where a match organiser has given explicit permission, it is the opinion of a medically trained person that it would be inadvisable for the player to continue. If none is present, that player may be replaced if the referee agrees.
c. The referee decides (with or without medical advice) that it would be inadvisable for the player to continue. The referee orders that player to leave the playing area.

23. The referee may also order an injured player to leave the playing area to be medically examined.
