    Cynical offences like that don't get a warning.

    Advantage and I’m thinking YC for the offender.


    Not


    Advantage and I’m thinking IS THAT A YC for the offender.

    I award try and YC black 9. Blue miss the conversion.

    PT never entered my thoughts as there was (onside) cover beyond Black 9.

    In the bar afterwards (which is good) Black 9 asks why the card when Blue scored anyway?

    I explained that given it was a Cup Final - albeit a low level one - then such cynical play, which he may well have got away with on any other Saturday at L10/11, didn't warrant such leniency in the particular match. I then suggested we never had another occurrence of it from the 2-3 other tap penalties and that if I didn't card him then how would I justify a card for their opponents if there was no score in similar circumstances? He seemed "happy" with the explanation.

    I get the feeling that some of my lower level colleagues let them get away with this and just march them back 10m - dunno?

    Anyway, exciting game finished 25-22 to Black with last (PK) kick of game - a bit disappointed Black couldn't score from a long advantage but Blue were miles offside in midfield so we came back for the PK. 12m out bang in front. If it had finished as a draw Blue would have won as away team.

    Too harsh?

    I'm open to persuasion.
    Spot on!

    i chose not to YC after the try, but Iím thinking this isnít right. The offence was worthy of a YC and would have had one if the try had not been scored so in hindsight I think I got this wrong.

    What do you do (or would do) in a similar situation?
    My thoughts on this, and the discussions above are interesting.

    1. Did the person who took the quick tap run into the defender deliberately to try and 'buy' the PK?
    2. Was the defender too slow to react to the PK due to fatigue? Yes, we appreciate that the LotG state
    "...members of the opposing team must immediately retreat 10metres toward their own goal line..."

    3. Were there any defenders in a position to effect a tackle on the ball carrier? If not then I'm thinking penalty try and definite
    4. What was the level of the game?


    Personally, if my reaction is to decide that the player warrants then I will still sanction the player, even after multiple phases of play. My call to the teams at the time of the offence would be - in this case - "Penalty Advantage Blue, Red #x not retreating 10m and it will be a card" That way both teams know where they stand.

    Probable and likely are both > 50%.
    You are right in saying the two words mean the same thing. Only they donít mean a 50/50 situation.
    probably

    Genuinely interested in the idea that you are telling teams that a card is going to be issued. Does that make the offending player more likely to re-offend during the advantage period, as they are going to get a yellow anyway? And if they did would you then issue a second yellow card and, therefore, have to show a red?

    I think it's a good idea.
    I tend to do it when a team is likely to take a quick tap .. so they decide to take a quick tap against 15 players , or wait for the card and play against 14 more organised ones

    Good question.

    In my experience the part I have highlighted is not the case. As for the second question; don't know. It would depend upon the severity of the subsequent offence(s), and if it is close to the try line may give cause for a PT.

    For me, you don't issue (announce) the card until play stops. You just see the offence and make a mental note: "red 6 YC for cynical obstruction (or whatever)", the player only knows when the try is scored and you call him over.

    Warn (Shout Leave him) - Penalise (If warning wasn't heeded - Pen and chat with the captian - anymore will be a YC) - Card - (If player/team repeats the offence).
    I think in this case you turn an ordinary offense into foul play by way of 9.7.a intentionally offending, and not 9.8 repeated infringement. This definitely in my opinion warrants taking the level of the match into consideration. The higher the level of the match the less things happen on accident or due to ignorance.
