    Default 'Technical offences?'

    Question: Is there a definitive list of 'technical offences' which if yellow carded and aggregated to a red card would not lead to a further sanction from the disciplinary panel ( a la Blair Cowan recently - his first yellow being a 'technical offence' of collapsing the maul)?

    That's what I thought too and it prompted me to try and find out what is or isn't a technical offence.

    I would have said that a technical offence was anything that wasn't foul play?

    I'm not sure why it matters, though. 2 Yellows in a game = a Red irrespective of reason for the yellow.
    I, for one, like Roman numerals

    Is the confusion due to the introduction of the "free kick" sanction for what used to be PK offences that we considered technical and not worth a full penalty?

    I had the same thought, and I imagine that's what they meant.

    However they goofed as collapsing a maul speciically is foul play

    Agreed - but if one of the yellows is deemed a technical offence then there is no further playing ban - hence why I was surprised to see Blair Cowan playing the following week and looked into it....
