Please ,note that teams’ replacement allocation is not affected by the revised HIA application. This includes if teams have used all their replacements.

• If a player fails the HIA – his temporary replacement becomes permanent and stays on the field even when the team has exhausted their allocation during this period.
• Tactical replaced players may return as temporary replacement for HIA.
• HIA temporary replacement has no effect on any remaining replacements for a failed HIA test – now a freebee. The only obligation is for that player who failed the HIA test not to return to play at any stage – he is permanently replaced.

Example:

• Player 22
o Team uses 5 tactical replacements – thus has 2 replacements remaining
o Player HIA – is temporary replaced by a player who was tactical replaced earlier.
o HIA Player fails test and his temporary replacement is now permanent
o The team still has 2 remaining replacements
Time Player Off Player On Reason
50 4 19 Tactical Still has 21 & 22 on the bench
60 7 4 HIA Still has 21 & 22 on the bench
70 7 4 Injured Still has 21 & 22 on the bench
