Is that a local rule?
In the UK for Stones Bitter matches only 4 substitutions are allowed from
17 players and in the Regal Trophy 4 substitutions are allowed from 15
players. In addition ***-bin substitutions are allowed if a player is
bleeding who must return in 10 minutes. The international rule is 4
substitutions from 17 players with unlimited time allowed for the
***-bin - or at least it was in the World Cup. I remember when I was
playing (pre-1978) we could have 2 substitutions from 15 players.
A case for standardisation perhaps.
All the best
