I recently reffed a junior game, U14, which was a local side vs a touring side from the NE. In a bad tempered game I yellow carded a blue player for kicking a red player( could have been a red one I know) Immediatly 2 coaches ran on and asked(demanded) that I allow a player on as sub for the carded player as it was a tour game and did not matter, I said no and asked them to leave the field.

The interesting thing is that my game started with a kickoff and the team recieved it and were tackled into the in goal, so we started with the goal line dropout. At half I had a referee coach watching me, and he asked if I was enjoying it. I then gave him my self assessment, which he was surprised on, which was I needed
