    Calling all rugby buffs and experts :

    Is there a difference between a substitution and a replacement in rugby ?

    Thanks a lot for helping.

    Yes. A "substitute" goes on the field for tactical reasons, like replacing Michalak for Delaigue; a "replacement" goes on the field to replace an injured player.

    Thank you Zinc, since nobody else has bothered to answer, I will just have to take your word for it.
