Temporary replacement - Head Injury Assesment (HIA)

Primary tabs

27 . In matches which have been approved in advance by World Rugby for use of the HIA process, a player who requires an HIA:

a. Leaves the field of play; and
b. Is temporarily replaced (even if all the replacements have been used). The game cannot restart until the player who requires an HIA has been temporarily replaced. If the player is not available to return to the field of play after 12 minutes (actual time) of leaving the playing area, the replacement becomes permanent.
