Joey Klaaste-Salmans, the chairman of the Western Province Referees' Society, is our go-to man when it comes to age-group rugby and its law variations.

Name: Adriaan Stander

Question: Law regarding substitution of a player (under age laws u/16 etc...) I was recently informed that the law regarding substituted players not being allowed to return to the field after substitution, has been changed to allow any player in any position that has been substituted to return back to field of play. But i can find any clear definition of this law. Regards

Joey Klaaste-Salmans: The law with regard to the substitutes has not changed. It is in its current form as per the World Rugby Laws.
