Quick Law change for you

Wait for the HIA / Blood replacement to get on the pitch before restarting the game

For some, completely inexplicable reason, it applies only to international matches

So that means you dont necessarily have to wait for a YC/HIA/Blood player to leave the pitch (or they would have said so)

Current Referee grade:
Level 6
With regard to the Blood Replacement I think that WR will very quickly realise their error and take out the offending words referring to HIA matches.

Here's hoping

All my matches are HIA matches.
If I'm not happy with a player I tell them to get him off and assess simple as that.
Had a few "head injury sir head injury sir" shouts over the years.
If I stop the game, off they go just to make sure!

There is no HIA at grade 7
If you get them off for a suspected head injury they cannot return under any circumstances
