Each coun­try is al­lowed a squad of 31 play­ers. These squads are to be sub­mit­ted to World Rugby by Au­gust 31 this year.

Once the squad has been sub­mit­ted, a player can be re­placed if in­jured, but would not be al­lowed to re­turn to the squad.

There is also a stand-down pe­riod of 72 hours be­fore a new player is al­lowed to take the field. Hence, a re­place­ment player called into a squad on the eve of a game will not be per­mit­ted to play in that game.
